I am not positive about the Ford way, but you can run a 12 wire from the output post of your generator up through the loop and then to the negative terminal on the battery (assuming you still have the positive ground). Then run the same size wire to the B post on your light switch. It should have a fuse on it. If it shows a discharge, reverse the wire down through the loop. I have the wiring diagram for the older Fords, but they had the cut out on top of the generator and not a voltage regulator
