Some Alts also have a ground wire vs a case ground - may be marked (E)
BE sure to check it as well as the others mentioned.

If you find a shop to test it they can confirm it is working and let you know what the output V is as well as the RPM that it "kicks in" and begins to charge.

A clamp on DC amp meter easiest way to confirm output and worth having for other troubleshooting aboard.
There are some reasonable $ ones out there - just be sure to check if it does DC as well as AC - some are AC Amp only
