I just got a 106, and the guy I got it from said it wasn't charging the battery. Just wondering how to test the starter generator and the regulator to see which is bad. Thanks

Here is a link to an article that was done a while ago on Testing a Starter Generator.

First of all make sure it will not charge. With engine running check for 14 volts at the battery

Well I finally got a chance to look at it. And the wiring is all corroded and some of the ones going to the regulator were snapped in two. Guess I need a new harness.
