    The wires to the Ammeter don't normally carry the full load. They carry the load between generator and battery which can sometimes be the full load (except for the starter which always goes direct from the battery).
    The generator is the source of the power, and all power directly goes to the users that are connected to it (via switches and sometimes fuses). Excess power goes to the battery via...

    The small rubber cup in the center of the "non-return valve" is the forward flow check valve. This is the bit that allows you to pump up the brakes.

    When I bought the kit I recognized the issues with the springs and put the kit on the shelf until I could get the time to try and resolve them.

    Dave DuBois has written an excellent article on this question. I'm sure if you google it you should find it easily. The specs are on the Green Stripe website. After reading the article I bought the Green Stripe 2 segmented belt he recomended. Cheers
