Re: Charging issue
Yes 12 volts isn't going to cut it. Is the Gen light coming on?
In order to find out if the alternator is working try unplugging the connector at the voltage regulator. Then connect a volt meter across the battery and start the engine. Jump the 3 to the F at the voltage regulator, this will make the alternator charge at maximum output. Only do this only for 5 seconds. You should be seeing 15+ volts on the meter if the alternator is good.
Also be sure and check the connectors going to the voltage regulator, they must be clean brass not corroded. You can usually clean them up if they are corroded.
