Before you reconnect the yellow wires you should perform this test first so you can verify the stator's proper operation.

Typically, as Exavid states, if you check the AC voltage from the three yellow wires, one at a time, (with the engine running) from yellow wire to ground and you find AC voltage readings to be equal or close on each one, the stator will normally be fine. (If you still don't have output, the regulator is most likely the problem.)

If the AC voltage readings from the yellow wires to ground , individually,vary greatly or show that one or more wires do not show a reading at all then the stator needs replacing.

As Jason states, it is often the connector that is the cause of the stator failing due to corrosion in the electrical connectors. That is why many Wing owners automatically remove the connector and solder the yellow wires together as a preventative maintenance plan.
