I'd verify continuity or, even better, check resistance between all components in the charging system. Make sure all your contacts are clean and well-conducting without any resistance (except where there should be). All terminals should be bright and shiny. Pull them off to check, brush them with a brass brush and contact cleaner if necessary and put them back together with a dab of dielectric grease. It's not a crazy complicated system and there isn't THAT much there to check. I think with a multimeter, contact cleaner, maybe some parts, and a little wisdom from the old skool you can have this thing charging again yourself.
