Hi All, need some help again.
Decided to take a little ride yesterday, went about 6 miles. She no longer charges properly, even with a new stator and reg/rec. Battery died and I was able to get a jump and charged enough to get back home.
While running, hook up my voltmeter, battery very slowly drains or stays the same, no longer seeing 14+ volts while running. When running, runs like a goldwing should, just a bit of popping through the carbs between 1000-2000 rpms.
The first few start ups after rebuild, was seeing at least 14V while running, so she was charging great. Stator, reg/rec, and battery are brand new.
I'm running 10-40w high quality oil with a little bit of marvel mystery oil. I may have about 1/4 quart too much oil in there - was using the marvel to get the engine nice and clean after 20 years of not running, could that have affected stator?
It could possibly be a loose connection but doubtful , I'll go over it more thoroughly when I have time.
Any initial ideas/testing procedure/things I could check that might be cause her to randomly stop charging?
