      With one of two field posts grounded, hook 12V to the other field. You should see a small spark. Should charge be careful of voltage with RPM. RPM should bring up voltage. You can also just remove the VR and jumper the two wires together and do the same thing. If it charges the VR is bad OR NOT GROUNDED
