Remove the field wire from the regulator & ground it. If it charges then the regulator is bad. If not the gen. is bad or something wrong in the circuit. Its best to check it with a voltmeter. The voltage will increase from the basic 12 volts if it is charging. Do not run it very long or fast with the field grounded.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.
