Default 6 to 12 volt conversion

So I'm tryin to get my truck figured out so I can get a wiring kit ordered.
1936 International C-1. Stock engine etc...

Right now my problem is my generator is putting out 20 volts, at an idle. Not sure if my generator is going bad or what. I put a test light on it once I got it running and the bulb got really bright, then quit working. My multimeter reads about 20 volts on the the wire coming out of the generator. What ever the wire goes into breaks the connection and nothing comes out of it. It is a flat piece of plastic looking stuff on the side of the generator.
I guess pics aren't working for me today. So you guys can guess what I got going on for now....

Should have a voltage regulator on it to take care of your problem. ??
The funniest thing about my signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it!!...

Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it.
