I believe I said the stator was "toast" not the battery. Small misunderstanding- No worries.

Installed the new Pod. and the battery is still not receiving any charge.

Pulled the primary cover and discovered the insulation on the wires deteriorated and bare wires were touching..

In the beginning, I thought the stator was good because I got a 3 ohm reading from the stator wires. My mistake.

The was reg.was, and probably still is good.

So now I have a new reg. and soon a new stator.
.
Time will tell if these changes solve the charging problem when I receive the stator and install it.

Will post the results

Thank you.
