Typically the battery terminal is the center terminal on the side with 3 lugs. You can verify this by tracing that wire back to the ammeter. The Gen terminal should be the single side lug. Jumper these two.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Lee,

Did someone local rebuild the generator? Or did you send it out...or? $$$? I am probably heading toward a rebuilt generator and would like to know. I see that someone sells armatures (~$60-70) on eBay, but would not know how to go about it, and wouldn't know if that's all that's involved in rebuilding. Armature? Brushes? And...?

BTW, polarized the existing generator yesterday. What I did, and I think this was covered in some previous posting by others, was to get just a spark to one side of the connector used for polarizing. Keeping on long time isn't good, as I recall.

I'm slowly working my way through the checklist #8 that covers "not charging."
