I do the caps, for people like me with bad eyes. Didn't know that was yelling!
Anyway, I did a test similar to Dave test that I saw at this URL:
THIS TEST THE VR
i made a 10 ga jumper wire from the ARM to the BAT terminal. then made another jumper wire, and it says to touch the Field to the arm. All wires connected.
Upon jumping the arm to the batt, the Gen light goes off, but I am only getting about 10 volts. Then jumping the Field to the Arm, there was no change. Even upon acceleration.
My guess is the 2nd generator is bad as well.
