The output of the regulator has to go to the positive battery connection, either at the starter solenoid, keyswitch, or direct to the battery . Do you have a voltmeter to test it? The stator under the flywheel puts out AC volts, and the regulator /rectifier changes it to DC volts. The regulator should show battery voltage with key on. The it should rise as engine starts and accelerates.

What type solenoid is this, the one that goes on the left end of the injection pump body? With a three wire harness?
