Looking at various pictures of the generators and I still cannot figure out what screw is for what terminal. The only letter on the geneator is a G. The voltage regulator has three terminals and it is a delco. Any pictures are appreciated.

I can't find your original post. I don't knoe what you are working on. As a general rule delco generators have a termainal marked with an "A" and one with a "F". These are insulated terminals and the one marked A goes to the brushes inside. The "G" you see may be a ground wire screw (not insulated). This is also common. The delco regulator should have a terminal marked for Batt.and one marked for field. The third will be marked "GEN". The field connects to the F on the gen. and the gen. should connect to the A on the gen. The BATT term on reg goes to the batt. usually to the batt side of the starter sol. Be sure to polarize. Shop manuals are very important on old cars. Tex
