Easy way, the thin wire carries less current than the thick wire. The 
field uses little current to produce big current in the armature.

So, the little wire goes on F (typically blue on Corvair)

The big wire goes on A (typically brown on Corvair)

But, you have something not making connection, not reversed connections 
on the generator. Check harness connector at firewall.

And I see you made it back from your trip! ggg
