1950 John Deere A generator question

When I got the tractor running it was charging at approximately 6 amps all the time. I did not think much of it because it was charging and voltage was approximately 13.4. I took the seat and battery box off to work on the power trol leaks and found the battery had vented more than I would like. The generator 3rd brush was in the max charge position. I moved brush about half way between the max and minimum positions. I have not started it yet. I was wondering if anyone has done amperage readings when they have moved the 3rd brush ?

I have not started it yet, I have the power trol housing off replacing the gasket and some seals. It will most likely be next weekend before I get everything back together.
( Work that annoying thing that gets in the way of my hobby. )

I was just wondering if anyone has done amperage reading after moving the 3rd brush to know how much it changes.

13.4v does not sound overly high. What is the new charge rate since you moved the brush?
