Hi Jason,

On question number one, you are correct about using two turns through the
window and the connections.

If you have a scanner, you might try this trick I've used successfully to
rescale meters. Carefully open the meter case
and remove the scale. Scan the scale and use Photoshop to change the
numbers to the desired range. Print the modified
scale on card stock, lay the original scale over the printed scale and cut
out around it with an x-acto knife. Install
the new scale.

This is rather delicate work as the movement and especially the pointer can
be easily damaged. As always, YMMV.

Good luck,
Jon G. Tebbs
