HiYa Chuck-
Burning up points sounds like a wiring issue. If you are using a digital VOM to try and measure voltage while tractor is running, forget it. The signal will play havoc and results are readings all over the place, and unstable. You mention a voltage regulator. First, we need to know whether you have the original 6V/POS GND system or a 12V/NEG GND switch-over job. With 6V you would have a generator and a voltage regulator. If you have a 12V system, the generator and VR are removed from the circuit altogether. If you go to our HOW-TO's forum under ELECTRICAL, and download a copy of WIRING PICTOGRAMS BY JMOR, scroll all the way to very bottom to find the wiring diagram for the Jubilee. Study it and verify if what you have matches it exactly. You only 'polarize' the VR/generator if you have them but that isn't your problem so more info is required first. The LINK is below to how-to's
