I put the SCR back in and reconnect everything and what it does it doesn't go higher than 12.6 volts and the "full charged" light doesn't come on.
Now I don't know at what voltage this charger is designed to charge the battery so I don't know if it is the charger not putting out enough voltage or the "full charge" light that is defective.
I'll have to study the "full charge" circuit do see if it does it's job.
I know that some cheap battery charger, with no regulation, don't go higher than 12.5 or 12.6 Volts.
