Pretty sure it's getting rectified to 12v nominal (14v?) but the ground voltage at the negative battery terminal is fluctuating due to AC bleeding out of the stator via the short.

To be sure, it would be best to plug the stator wires into the rectifier and check the output voltage directly on the pins of the rectifier instead of hooking it up to the harness and checking the voltage at the battery.
