Voltmeter across the battery

Voltmeter across the battery terminals is first step. It will probably just show that you only have 6v nominally as RPMs increase. The regulator is probably not working. You should get a copy of the Doug Rinckes book...there is a V1.0 floating around the web...Vech sells a very nice colored version.
