Default Rectifier?

I have an older Grand Touring that works alright but I was having a battery charging issue since we bought it and when I looked into it today I see a voltage regulator with a yellow and black wire + a ground coming from the plug...is this also a rectifier because the plugin going towards the motor has a red wire. Thx for any help

I'd say yes. Any red wire is usually 12V DC positive.

To check, just attach a Digital Voltmeter set on 12V DC to the leads attached to the battery and start the engine. If it's working, battery voltage should go to around 14-15 Volts when you rev the engine. If it doesn't, work your way backwards to the VR checking for a broken wire, blown fuse, etc.
