Looks like the cut out function of the VR is working, but not the field control function. First I would verify good ground to VR base. ThenI would disconnect the battery, remove VR cover, start tractor and use finger or plastic or wood to push the field control contacts closed manually & see if it charges. Sometimes these contacts oxidize and once they have closed & actually made electrical contact the arc blows away the oxide and all is well. If that doesn't work, then burnish contacts with rough paper bag. Do not remove/replace cover with battery connected as cover by short parts together.
