"A" or "ARM on regulator to "A" on generator.

"F" or "FLD" on regulator to "F" on generator.

"B" or "BATT" on regulator to ammeter. Other side of Ammeter to ungrounded battery cable at solenoid or starter switch.

Battery goes to one ammeter terminal. Regulator output and ALL electrical loads go to other side of ammeter.

Polarize generator BEFORE startup
by momentarily jumpering "BATT" and "ARM" at regulator.

If ammeter reads backwards, swap wires between the two terminals.

not sure where A is on the generator and where F is on the generator can't tell. Not sure which ones which. The 3 Poles on the voltage regulator are not labeled and I have lost the paper work for it.Does the generator its self need grounded to the frame?

Generator should be stamped next to the posts into the case which one is Arm and Field. Same with the tabs on the regulator.

YES the Gennys case needs a good ground to case frame.........

If you have a good (at very low ohms measurements) ohm meter and the genny is correct and good internally, heres how to tell which is ARM and which is FLD.

Put meter on low ohms scale,,,,,,,,attach one lead to case frame,,,,,,,the ARM should read near zero ohms very low ,,,,,,The FLD post will read around maybe 3 to 4 ohms higher then that on ARM post......

On some gennys the ARM post is a tad bigger in diameter then the FLD post......

No A or F stamped on the case?????????

That help???????? John T

Silly me, I forgot your VR question, heres how to tell which post is which on a good working VR using an ohm meter.

Put one lead to the case frame on the VR,,,,,

The BAT terminal should show no continuity (an open circuit)
The FLD terminal should show low resistance to case frame, maybe zero to 3 or 4 ohms
The GEN/ARM terminal may show 20 to 50 or so ohms

Got it?????????

The voltage regulator terminals are labeled "L" on one "BATT on one and "F" on one. What"s the "L" stand for. Does the "L" terminal wire to the "A" or "ARM" on the generator?

When you say regulator output do you mean "B" or "BATT" to ammeter right?
