More than likely your voltage regulator is out. The generator produces electricity, so you know the rotor and stator are OK. The 50 volts comes from the magnets permanent properties. The reason you are not getting 120 is because rotor or electron magnet is not getting any power supplied to it, which it needs to produce the amount of electrons you need to have 120vac. Make sure your engine is running at 60 hz first, and you should ohm out the windings and circuits that connect to your regulator.

Is your generator AVR (automatic voltage control) or with a capaster type, 1st you check speed Hz if its ok at 60Hz and you did not find any viual problem then you check AVR or capaster i hope your problem will solve.

The voltage can go down provided the engine RPM drops off. So check if the oil change and scheduled maintenance was done on time.
If the RPM is set up according to the load , the voltage will rise up , but if the voltage is low the Load connected can also be high.
So if in dry load the generation is low you might need a full check up,overhauling/cleaning out of the alternator, engine to get his back to shape.
