Default Electrical question possible regulator / generator bad?

hey all had a quick question. I am trying to figure out what the main cause of a 20 amp generator fuse blowing would be. I personally feel it is the regulator that has gone bad as it is a 1959 cessna 150. (20 amp generator equiped)

The battery is fine, it just pops the fuse. It takes a charge it seems.

Let me know what you guys think!
Thanks

Some details on Delco-Remy generator/regulator systems:

I agree it's probably the regulator.
