IF your ammeter is wired correctly, where one terminal ONLY connects to battery and the other has all other loads & gen/VR output, then I suggest that it may be working just fine. Why? Because energy is drawn from battery during starting & is replenished during first few minutes of running & after that almost no current goes into or is removed from battery, thus a virtual ZERO reading on ammeter. What is voltage across battery terminals both when you see a charge and when you don', say after 5 minutes of no charge.?
