Question about Electrical Supplies
If you have already paid $800 for a controller that did not need to be replaced and are facing an additional cost of $5,000 for replacement of a stator and rotor that may or may not solve the problem, it might be time to consider replacing the generator.

Testimonial: "I am fully aware that stator and rotor replacement may not be cost effective. That is why I am seeking review of the stator assessment. The service manual implies that continuity should not present between those two main leads. If so, the stator could be fine, and another problem exists. 1) Should there be continuity between those main leads and 2) What else could be causing the problem?"

There are basically 2 possibilities that can cause this.
1) Enigne RPMs are too low. but, since you already played with the throttle, this probably isn't the case. RPMs should be about 3600 though.
2) The voltage regulator / capacitor has high ESR (resistance) or is bad altogether. Replace.

As long as you have continuity through the stator and rotor windings, and no continuity from the windings to the core, you should be good.
If the brush block was replaced due to it being defective, take a look at the diode and capacitor regulator as well. Using a multimeter, the diode should indicate continuity in one direction, infinite resistance in the other. If you get this, then replace the capacitor. If not, then replace the diode, and likely the capacitor as well.
