RE: Installing a current meter..

I don't think that's an amp meter at all.

I think it's a volt meter being used to calculate amps by ohms law.

voltage divided by resistance is current.

A true amp meter would be connected in series.

Connecting your meter inline, from the bottom of the cathode resistor to ground, should work just fine it what you have is a true amp meter.
