Normally I would expect it to charge more too. But, with two
different generators, both charging, both using the same VReg?
You say it has never charged the battery very well. Same battery?
Not long ago I had one that would not register a charge at all on
the ammeter and it was because the battery was bad.
I thought it would be trying to charge to beat the band, but
it didn't read a measurement on the ammeter at all.
Car parts place will test the battery for free if you don't have
a hydrometer and/or load tester at home.
Sure, it could be the VReg. I don't think so since it is charging,
but it is possible. If it is, the replacement VRegs are junk.
Make sure you get one with a "no questions asked" return policy,
or consider converting to a 12 volt system.

|2 different generators, same voltage regulator.In |
the 10+ years since I rebuilt the 8N I have
replaced the battery 4 times. This battery is only
2 years old. The 8N does not get used a lot, but
it should be enough to keep the battery charged if
it was working right. Saturday I charged the
battery to about a 25% charge, enough to start the
tractor, and ran the 8N for about 2 hours at 3/4
throttle disking a field. I then connected the
battery charger back and the charge % had hardly
changed. I left the charger connected and the
battery had charged to 50% when I stopped it, so
the battery will take a charge.
