I kind of thought that generators were pretty much all the same.

This is on a 1965 Ford power unit. The generator has the Field, ground and the armature terminals on it. the regulator is behind the sheet metal so it is not real visible. It does have four terminals on it. Armature, field and ground, the fourth terminal going to the amp gauge. From the amp gauge to the starter solenoid where the positive connects. I was guessing this is the same as all the older tractors.

"I was guessing this is the same

WRONG guess. Troubleshooting procedure will depend upon whether it is a "A" system or a "B" system.

Terminal markings on gen and reg are the same, functionality is NOT.

I learn something new everyday. I thought it might be as simple as putting a meter from this wire to that one and checking the current going through.
