battery tests good. gen tested good ( unhook cables, ground the df to the gen itself and you should get 20-30v out of it dont run to long or you it can over heat the gen.) so battery good and the gen is good then must be the reg. or that is my logic based on what i have been reading.

sounds like pretty good logic.
Also make sure the regulator itself where the bolts/screws to the car is a grounded area, if not ground to the engine/trans/frame. Also if the top is removable you can look at the little point and make sure they are not welded closed, if they are you can unstick em, file em a bit and get a few more miles outta it till you do the alt.
