hoof up positive ground as that is the way it is supposed to be your reg will not work as the reverse current coil is set for positive ground polarize the gen by touching bat ttterm to arm term just to draw a spark that is enough if it wont charge then ground the field if it still wont charge the gen is bad you have probably ruined the reg by using neg ground but you might have beenlucky

Joe I will bet the generator was rebuilt as original positive ground. Reverse the cables on your battery and see if it will then charge. If you go to negative ground, which you can, then you have to reverse the wires on the ampmeter and repolarize the generator. That positive charge indication you were seeing was actually a negative charge.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
