Sorry about that. I wasn't entirely clear.

I first measured the resistance of d+ when disconnected from the generator,
with the black lead to GND. In  this case DF was connected to the generator.
I got 10-11 ohms.  

Was that right?
Or wrong?
On my new VR, I just measured with one lead at D+ on the VR and the other at
DF on the VR, and got 18 ohms.

Was that the right way to measure it? Or wrong?

Regardless, the guys who sold me this bum generator are sending me a new one
free of charge, pending return of the crud one.
So all's well enough.
