It's not going to charge without the voltage regulator connected.
I had this info for an '84, don't know if it's the same as an '86.
Alternator Connections for Other Years:
On your 84 external voltage regulator, you have the following:
F, S, A, I
Unplug the wiring harness going into the external voltage regulator. Either splice into with your new wire or make a blade connector that will go into the old wiring harness. You will need to tap into two of those wires:
The F will not be used.
The S will go directly to the I on the 3G. The A will go directly to the A on the 3G. The I will not be used.
Looking at it from the 3G viewpoint:
The BAT goes to the inline fuse.
The stator connector goes to the S connector on the 3G.
The A connector goes to the A wire on the old wiring harness.
The S connector goes to the stator connector on the back of the 3G.
The I connector goes to the S wire on the old wiring harness.
