[T3] generator/regulator woes



I have a 1967 Squareback.

My generator doesn't seem to want to charge my battery.  I checked the
big red wire from the generator to the regulator, and it's not broken -
I get 1.3 ohms on my multimeter.  However, the red light on my the left
gauge still doesn't want to go out.

I changed the regulator out with one from a 1969 Bug (I converted to an
alternator to feed my stereo) - they appeared to be exactly the same
('cept the square's was a lot dirtier).  This didn't help, either.

So, I'm looking for any ideas.  bad generator?  Can I put my Bug's
generator in there?  is changing the brushes out a big deal?
