I have an old analog radio shack meter that works great for checking old 6 volt systems. Battery shows 6 volts plus a little with engine off and 7 volts with engine running. I also have an old sears "Automotive Analyzer" that works great. It has a switch to go between 4, 6, or 8 cyl. And will give you volts, amps and rpm. Also dwell, point resistance, and an alternater diode test.
Yard sales are a great place to find good old meters.
