Thanks Dave, your diagnosis was dead on. I switched the wires around and it's working correctly. With the engine at idle the ammeter reads around 5 or 6, half throttle around 12 and half throttle with the lights on it's reading 15.

Not sure if that's what's supposed to be happening but it appears to me that the genny is working.

Thanks again, I appreciate your help.
