Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, proposed preliminary checks (if have not been tried):

  • • re-inspect the battery, its ground lines and/or re-check and re-clean the battery cables + terminals as well as stator's & regulator's connectors and wiring ;
  • • passive tests:
  • - check resistance of any/all 3 pairings of the stator coils to be nearly equal and on all 3 (0.29 ~ 0.43 Ω);
  • - but none should have any resistance to engine ground (OL or ∞);
  • • active tests:
  • - check voltage output of any/all 3 pairings of the stator coils to be nearly equal;
  • - at least 25V AC when idling and must rise proportionately with the RPM;
  • - 38 ~ 58V AC @ 3,000.

Additionally, check the rotor including for its magnetic strength.
