No... To do the test, the lead has to go to the field connection on the alternator. Output stud wire stays hooked up, field connection unhooked.
What this does is eliminate the VR out of the loop and "tells" the alternator to fully charge.
Again, check charged battery voltage before you do anything.
That did the trick. I was able to kick on the charge circuit of the Alternator. Added a little RPM, and I got it up to 13.8..and would keep going, but didn't want to over stress anything. So at least I know what the issue is. I'm ordering a new set of VR's and will also keep my bad one as a get home spare.. if ALL else fails as it sound like these things aren't very reliable.
