That sounds more like "light" as in "warning light"

How many terminals are on it and what do the rest say?

Mine has 4

L for lamp (mine is not used)

F for field

B for bat

either G or A for generator

there are 4 tabs on the new regulator , ground, field , batt, and L , the old reg had 4 tabs also ground. field ,batt,and gen. the 990 wireing diagram shows the gen wire gouing to the negative side on the ammeter, keep in mind i replaced the ammeter with a volt meter. much safer i was told. so it appears to me L and gen tabs are the same. so where do i run the wire to. :fing20:

Does it SAY "ground" or does it say "G"?

L to mean A for armature or G for generator does not make sense.

LOOK at the "ground" tab. Does it appear to actually be grounded to the case, or is it mounted underneath, ad appear to be insulated?
