You say things are totally dead. Let's start by checking to see if you have generator output. Take a short jumper wire with allegator clips on both ends and attach one end to the field terminal on the generator and the other to a good clean part of the generator body. With the engine at half throttle, you should have 10 plus amps showing on your ammeter. If you do not there is a problem with the generator or, possibly, your wiring harness or terminals. Check this out and report back on what you find.

You should start trouble shooting from the beginning; here is a chart that I believe was put together by FarmallBob.
