Thanks Tim for your answer. Here is summary of my former conversations.
I have 3 8Ns already restored. I converted the three of them from 6 V generators into a 12V system. In one of them I replaced the generator with a 12 v alternator. In relation to the other two, I made the conversion recoiling their fields. I wired them as a B type generator. One of them is running the right way. As it is very difficult to get VRs here in Chile, JMOR recommended me to buy in the US a C0NF10505A VR. I bought it and followed all recommendations JMOR gave me for the installation and polarization. At the first time the VR worked properly, about 10-20 amps, but after 1 or 2 minutes it stopped charging. That's why I started to make several safe connections to try to solve this weird behaviour of the VR.
I hope this clarifies your doubts.
