lucas 3 spade alternator wiring

Hey everyone,
I've been trying to sort out some home made wiring, that came with my series 2a. I'm rewiring the 3 pin lucas alternator.
Going by diagrams on line,I have the + and - larger wires from the alternator running to the solenoid.The smaller yellow brown wire,running from alternator to a warning light,then to the ignition switch,and from there, back to the same point on the solenoid. I've tried this ,but the alternator just made a humming noise and my multi-meter didn't show the battery charging.My question is, do both smaller wires coming from the alternator and the solenoid meet at the same point on the ignition switch?
My ignition switch has 3 contact points.
