Did you check the connection at the regulator/rectifier?
You have to face up to what the tests are telling you. You need a new stator.Replaced the regulator since that was easier but the problem remains. Looks like a stator is needed. Can't get more than 45 VAC or more than 12.5 V at the battery when revving the engine. Any more thoughts?
You can get a voltage increase but may not have full current available. Check stator resistance through the 3 poles and also to ground. Check ac voltage with the engine running between the polesI didn't check the connection at the regulator/rectifier as I thought if that were bad I wouldn't see increased voltage at the battery when I revved the engine.
