The problem was caused by a broken terminal bushing. When I replaced the spark plug wires a couple weeks ago, I replaced the wires from the VR to the generator at the same time, as there was damage to one or two of them. In doing so, I noticed that one of the terminals on the generator was rotating when I was trying to loosen/tighten the nut holding the wire on. Didn't think anything of it at the time. But when the terminal rotated, the wire connection to it on the inside broke off.
There was a Bakelite (or something like that) bushing holding the terminal from rotating and it cracked in two. I Krazy Glued it back together and soldered the wire back on. Put everything back together, and now the tractor is running (and charging) just fine. And the ammeter is actually working nicely.
I'll take the tractor back to the cabin this weekend, and plow the snow off the drive!
