Does a Cub regulator have a ground wire? where are the grounding points?

it grounds where it bolts to the engine, the body of the regulator most of the time has a small ground strap to the base of the unit

Sounds like a safe assumption. Grounding wires under mounting bolts don't sound like original design anywhere on a Cub.
Maybe grounding out the generator to get it to put out full all the time?

Not unusual for an ammeter to not work after painting a tractor due to it not getting a good ground through the paint, and a wire being run from one bolt of the ammeter to a good ground point, or even back to the ground side of the battery.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
