I have to-20 6v pos ground system. I just installed new voltage regulator. I checked continuity on all wiring leading to voltage regulator- no issues. I jumped "battery" terminal on voltage regulator to "generator" terminal on voltage regulator before starting it. When I turn lights on with tractor running amp meter reads -10. When I turn lights off amp meter reads 0. It never goes to charge side, low idle or high throttle speed. Voltage across battery terminals with tractor off is 6.2v; and it is 6.2 tractor running. I took one of the battery connectors off( the + ground off with the tractor running at high throttle and the tractor died. Is this a conclusive test that the generator needs to be rebuilt?

Thanks Tom I found a short in a wire in the lighting system, tightened all connections to voltage regulator and I changed an in-line fuse, pulled the lights on for at least 30 seconds and when I turned them off the voltage regulator and generator began to talk with each other. The ammeter was showing a charge on the plus side which the battery was in need of. I have my fingers crossed and am happy. Charlie
