Two things spring to mind.
Do you have ignition light, and correct size bulb in it?
Why have you got a regulator, alternators usually have them built in, in my experience?

Should be a "Delcotron" setup on your truck. The regulator is a mechanical job with relays inside. There are two different types of regulator used according to whether an ignition warning lamp was factory fitted or not. There's some basic testing info here. | Repair Guides | Firing Orders | Alternator | AutoZone.com

If you're not bothered about originality, it might be worth changing to a Delco 10SI alternator -confusingly also called a "Delcotron" but the SI suffix denotes that it has the internal solid state regulator. You just wire these to your battery connection and ignition warning lamp if you have one.
