Charging issue:

1. Make sure the fan belt is tight

2. With round in dash volt meter, connect all wires from ammeter to positive post on volt meter. Ground the negative side

3. How is your one wire alternator configured?

If it has a plastic dummy plug on #1 and #2 pins remove the plug and check for a bridge wire across the 2 pins. If so, replace the plug

If no bridge across #1 to #2, or if no plug, or if #2 is connected to output stud, place a jumper across 1 and 2 or put a jumper from output to #1 pin. Start engine. If it now charges your alternator was not being excited.

If this makes it charge you could add a wire with a diode or "idiot lite" from output of ignition switch to #1 pin. You can leave this wire in place, but do not leave the direct jumper in place
