Ahhh.....Makes perfect sense. I do keep it on a 6V battery maintainer to keep charge at full. I'll have to find a different ammeter. My 2 lead is only good to 10 amps.. Tractor is a '58 861. Thanks for your help.....

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeTom, your clamp on DC ammeter would still be just fine. It is the Armature to Field jumper that commands full output.

Just want to be sure before I try. Leave all connections wired "as is" and then jumper the armature and field terminals on generator to command for full load? Then use my DC clamp on red armature wire to measure current going to voltage regulator? Will also check voltage going to battery when running as mentioned in previous reply.
