No, only the stator and the rectifier affect charging, But is the output of the rectifier going to the battery posiitve ? You can check the stator output, and the rectifier with a voltmeter. Unplugged from the rectifier, the stator has t put out a minimum of 28 volts AC. Then plugged into the rectifier, the output should be 1/2 of the stator or around 14 volts DC. This has to go to the battery.
