Charging question (general discussion)

Not sure if it matters but is this a positive ground system?

I've installed a few that acted like that and needed to be polarized. Here's the directions from a man I totally trust.

Usually there is no need to re-polarize the generator. Sometimes if it has been jumped off incorrectly it can change the polarity and if it should be necessary to re-polarize the generator use a jumper wire to momentarily touch the GEN and BATT terminals of the voltage regulator with the engine stopped and the battery installed Positive ground in the 6 volt N Ford tractor.
Be absolutely sure that you do not touch the FLD terminal while polarizing the generator to battery connections. Absolutely!
