With the field un-grounded there is no reference point for output voltage. There will be no output. The voltage regulator controls the grounding of the field. It appears your generator is functioning correctly - look at your regulator.

All the following statements are just my beliefs, not absolute facts. That Chrysler generator is not Delco. It will not work properly with a Delco regulator. It may be an Autolite generator. I suggest using a regulator for the specific generator.
My literature indicates that Chrysler did use AutoLite for the years 1946-1956, probably other earlier and later years also. If your generator has a number tag, if it starts GHM or GJC, it is a 12 volt unit. But in any event, the Delco regulator will not work.
it starts with ggw and from one website I found it is a 6volt unit and the regulator I hooked up would work if I took the cover off it. then it quite but then I had pulled it from my 100 because it didn't work there either. Chad
