What is the isolator for Marc is it for the house batteries the starting batteries should not have 1 in the loop the big wire from the solenoid to the alternator charges the starting batteries and I don't see that wire so the isolator is tied to the starting batteries the way it is now do you have separate batteries for the house ? or do both leads from the isolator go to the 2 starting batteries or 1 to the house battery, the isolator is doing it's job by just letting the current flow one way
 

good luck

Clifford,

I assumed that one side of the isolator lead to the house batteries and the other lead to the starting batteries.  I can confirm this in the morning.

I wonder if the pressure switch went bad. If you jump across it do you get 12v at the red wire on the alt? Looks like it still needs 12v at unused terminal on alt. Red wire should do that if the pressure switch works...Cable

In 1 of the pictures Marc posted shows one of the wires going to a pressure switch on the fuel line.  Huh Huh Is this something the PO might have done?

We go it.  Turns out it has a "self-exciting" internal regulator and that there is no ignition lead.  It was wired correctly all along.  The isolator is bad, so we moved the alternator terminal to "battery 1", which is the starter battery bank and we are in business.  Cory had. It right.  Thanks for all the responses.
