OK, thinking of going back to basics this end, following on from prior posts.... Isolate idiot light line at alternator plug, put a bulb between alternator output terminal and idiot light terminal (eg engine mounted idiot light, only disadvantage is that it's not ignition switched so will draw on the battery all the time. Does this get the alt going?

If not, what's the voltage across the alt output terminal and the alt body? (both with engine off and engine on)....
