Good morning list,

I asked the list for some help a few weeks ago while I was visiting my parents. 
I was working on his '55 Nomad, 327/th400, and it wasn't charging. I've checked 
the alternator, replaced the voltage regulator, and the battery received a good 
charging (outside the car) I received lots of responses and to those 

One question that never got answered and has me puzzled is "How does the charge 
from the alternator get to the battery?" Does it pass through the starter, or 
is it just magic? My dad and I are stumped. The car still isn't charging.

any suggestions?  Please help. It's no fun cruising then asking for a jump!---
