Thanks for the information! My "new" 1963 f100 has been sitting since 1997. It has a "New" generator and regulator installed in 1997. I'm hoping this procedure will get the generator charging again. Then on to the next outdoor, Northwest storage induced problem corrected...

Just installed a new battery on my 51 F-1 and found I had lost charging from the generator. Found this post and disconnected the Field wire and touched it to the Battery wire. I observed the small blue spark, reconnected the field wire to the regulator. On starting up, the charge gauge shows charge again. Thanks for the excellent help!
