Since I'm busted......
I replaced a stator a couple years ago. I've replaced a lot of stators, but to the point.
It was an RMStator. I bought it to save ten bucks. It worked 35 seconds.
Having just replaced the stator, I began diagnosing the rest of the charging system, because I just replaced the stator.......
I use to put a lot of emphasis on the 70VAC rule, until then.
I had 80VAC output on all three leg combinations, with ZERO loaded stator output. The ohm check in the manual showed all three legs to ground and when I pulled the NEW stator out, the insulating material was destroyed and flaking off.
There isn't a VAC value issued by Honda that I can find.
I use to think that was because these books were "old school" and new diagnostic methods would rule the day.
I was wrong.
