Trouble shooting the generator/voltage regulator

Hi guys. I apologize for all the questions on my cub Cadet 100. The tractor sat for at least 5 years without a battery in it. The generator/starter was supposedly rebuilt right before the steering went out. It doesnít seem to be charging. How do I go about trouble shooting the charging system? Do I need to polarize the generator and voltage regulator? Do you know what the air gap is supposed to be in the two points on the regulator. I really appreciate your advice.

Use a volt-ohm meter on the battery when it running and not. Volts should increase by about 2 when running. If not it isn't charging. There already is a post on polarizing it.

young tractor:

Simple test. Ground the "F" terminal on the S/G briefly, and watch your Amp Gauge. If the Amp gauge goes to Full Charge, then you have a V/R problem. If it does not, then you have a S/G problem.

Just want to add that we know your CC 100 has a Kohler in it, but the only difference between that and Briggs is the shaft in the generator itself turns backwards because it drives from the other end of the engine. Troubleshooting should be the same.
