Hi guys,
All appeared to go well today I am getting a voltage reading at the battery when it is reving above tick over so I conclude it is charging.
Thank you for all your help and I am sure I have many more questions for you all.

Thank you again,
Andy

I wouldn't revenge the engine - it hasn't done anything wrong!

The reading is above battery holding voltage increasing with the revs so dynamo must be charging.

Hi Andy,
9 volts means the regulator is not regulating   :(
Voltage that high on a 6v system will damage the battery

I would expect to see around 7.2v if it was properly regulated above tick over.
