Just checked all grounds again and cleaned them just in case. also cleaned the connectors between the stator and the r/r.
checked the voltage again.
with the engine cold at idle i get around 14v and at 5k i get 14.5
when the engine warms up and the fan kicks in it's about 13v at idle and 13.3 at 5k, and when the fan goes off the voltage is back to normal.
later the voltage drops to <13v at idle and 13.3 at 5k even with the fan off.
the stator puts out 25-110 ac voltage when it's cold and when it's hot.
also something i noticed is that when the voltage goes down the engine wants to stall, but if i unplug the stator from the r/r the rpms go back up to normal idle.
and when the r/r is disconnected from the battery it is putting out 15.5v at idle and 15.3 at 5k
btw the oil is not low, but i do have a tiny leak.
