xring 223,To check things ,remove the belt from the generator pulley and jump across the two connection posts on the cutout with a short piece of wire ect.Does that make the generator motor?If not there is something wrong with the generator or wire connections.Post back.

for gennies with a vreg.. you have to tweak the vreg to get them to charge 8v.

in general.. 8v is a poor bandaid.

I'd make 6 work or go 12.

if it likes 8.. it will love 12...

you don't tweak a relay. a 1 wire genny has a 3rd brush you turn up.

What's the voltage at each terminal of your cutout relay when running?
I'm thinking your generator is charging fine and your cutout is not closing.
Wouldn't be the first bad new one I've heard about.
Ammeter discharges when lights are on sounds right to me.
It should bounce as the points open and close when cranking.
