As the regulator is NOS, methinks that the generator is not generating.   As far as I know it’s a standard generator as fitted to the early six-cylinder cars. What about new brushes? Any instructions out there for this electrically challenged person? The car is still positive earthed.

Been Sitting awhile?  Polarize generator field windings
