Ken,
Just watched your video. Congratulations!!! Doesn't that feel amazing to see one running again after it's been in a hundred pieces.

Hey, I noticed in you video, just when you pushed the kill switch, the ammeter was reading negative, then went to zero. Is there a chance your ammeter is just wired backwards, and it actually is charging? Just something to check before you go through too many hoops. Sometimes the obvious things are the easiest to overlook.

Good luck,
Bill

Bill - it had been wired backwards, because when you first pulled it out it went positive :D - Did all the tests sent by John and the one by Tim (TST) - it seems the Generator needs to take a truck ride. :D
