Default Alternator not exciting

Car is now out of storage, started up ok but alternator did not kick in to charge battery, Everthing worked fine when put to sleep for the winter. This is total dry storage, no vermin etc. Checked voltage at the alternator ,12.62v ,no amount of reving solved the problem. Thinking that somehow the alternator was kaput, I purchased another,with the same outcome. The only change in wiring since
last fall was to reverse polarity on the coil. I had it wrong.Any thoughts as to what to check ?
