First unplug the connector for the startor. then check for power AC on all 3 wires, it has to be the same at 4000 or 5000 rpm. some 50 or 60 volts AC. if this is ok then plug it back and check the power DC in the batt. if it is 12.70 dc volts or under when the revs go high then it is the regulator.

Sounds like it,either the float is stuck,badly adjusted,the needle could be worn,the needle seats o ring may be leaking around the edge,there could just be a bit of dirt in it stopping it from seating properly.

Not charging battery


what we need to do is find out if your stator isnt working or if your regulator is bad
you need a volt meter on the ac scale and check across the battery with the engine off and with the engine running and with it running and with the lights on
let me know what you have for readings
