[quote:948183e037]sorry if I offended you in any way[/quote:948183e037]

I'm an Australian. The world has been offending us ever since our forebears were transported from England as Convicts, 200 years ago. We don't get offended easily!!! :lol:
The engine should run if you lift the generator lead with the engine running above 1,000 RPM. Less than 1,000 RPM and the generator may not be generating sufficient current.

If you lifted the lead with the engine over 1,000 RPM and the engine died, it sounds like the generator is not charging. Most likely culprit will be worn brushes which is a job you can do yourself. Alternatively, have an auto electrician check the generator, renew the brushes, skim off the commutator and lubricate the bushes and you should be in business again. It should not be an expensive job, maybe $50 to $100. Don't let the auto electrician tell you brushes are unavailable or that you should change to another generator or alternator!

That Lucas generator on the 12 volt TEA20 only turns out a maximum 11 amps, not much at all. All generator outputs are DC so you can also disconnect the wires from the generator and connect a 12 volt light globe, which should light up if the generator is charging.
