Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. You need to "Flash" the generator to excite the magnatism in order to get an output. There are several methods. I recommend the use of a pair of drills. See the link below.

Sorry but the links don't seem to be working. Google "flash generator" and use the drill method.
