What actually SENDS power to the battery to charge??
I KNOW that it's the stator - coil unit in the PTO - but how does the power TRAVEL to the battery?
Reason I am asking: if you saw my other thread about "Can't find voltage regulator" you know that my ski is giving me a 12V Low Warning continuously while running. Works fine all day, but at the end of the day, it wouldn't start, had to change batteries.
Ski pulls 11.5v at the battery while off, drops slightly while starting (predictable) and then levels at 11.5v while RUNNING and while REV'D - so I am NOT charging my battery while running. I need to isolate whether it's a WIRE or CONNECTOR, BEFORE I go pulling the motor out and changing the stator.
No, not running the radion while testing.
No, not running ANYTHING while testing.
Yes, was happening BEFORE I installed the stereo.
No, was NOT happening before the engine was replaced - happening with the new (used) motor. Wondering if the engine had a bad stator.

Sammy. See if someone close by will loan you a regulator. I didn't look at the oem parts to see what they cost, but I would do everything that I could to see if thats not your problem, or a connection at the mpem, or anything else, before I would go pulling the motor and taking the pto cover off. Pain in the A to me.
