Just had the starter rebuilt. Been in twice still doesn't work. Took it apart and see that the armature is grounding on the field magnets. Sent it to another shop. In the meantime I borrowed a starter and put it on. When I started it back up it was charging in reverse. Nope the cables aren't switched. Still positive ground. Any fresh ideas would be appreciated. I thought about just switching the battery now and let it be a negative ground. Would that be a problem?

neg. ground isn't a problem, but your ammeter will read reversed. may try polarizing the gen first, (jumper wire between "a" terminal & batt.)

Or maybe your gen has stopped charging and what you are reading is the discharge amount ????
