I measured from green to white, not from red to white. Do you have a red wire on the field coil or is that a typo? There ARE red wires on the rectifier.

If you get 7 or so ohms measuring wire-to-wire, but get 0 ohms measuring white-to-ground when the parts are in place, it could be that the white wire shorts when it's assembled.

But then again it sounds like you know what you're doing but just need help with this odd alternator.
