You should only be using 2 connections of the potentiometer.  You are simply using it as a variable resistor.  connect the middle leg of the pot to the negative terminal of the battery.  You should get output from the output terminal of the regulator.  Leave the resistor connected there too.  Just connect another wire there to run to the ignition switch.  The right terminal of the pot should be open.
  

For my Pot  you said:

middle leg =  negative on battery (ground)

right leg = open? unused?

left leg = ????

sorry

Leave the left leg just as it was.   I gave instructions to repair it.  Just connect middle leg to battery ground.  And add the wire to go to the ignition.  Remove wire from right leg of pot.

I'm sorry which wire are you talking about?  The middle pot wire goes to ignition AND battery negative / ground?

Convert 12V DC to 6V DC - Page 5 -- posted image.

This gives me a Max of 5.44v DC out.  ( with R1 hooked up Or Not! )

thanks alot!

Middle wire of pot goes only to ground.

Output leg of the 317 remains connected to the resistor in your picture.  You also need to connect a wire to the output of the 317 to run to the grey wire.  The output of the 317 will be connected to the resistor and to the wire going to the grey wire.
