They sure didn't do you any favors with the wire colors, but between this manual
https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=AE67F...212763&o=OneUp
The schematic is on page 16. Check the wire numbers against the schematic. Wire 22 is pretty clear in the picture but I couldn't see the others.

and this picture, hopefully you can sort it out.

A point of interest. When my Regulator went this fuse also was bad. You can check it with an Ohm Meter. A dead short with everything off. Remove one of the wires for the test.
It's just to the left of the regulator under the same cover.

I bought it here.

I was having some problems with my q-55 not putting out voltage yesterday and was into stuff (got my problem fixed). But I wanted to know what the normal operating condition was on the voltage regulator. It has a read light on it. Since it all seemed to be working I am assuming that the red light means all is well or should I be concerned?
