Charging System Output Help
I put in a TPE rewound stator and I'm seeing 12.4v at idle when hot, with the high-beam and fan on. My replacement R/R is giving worse results, as it is not as efficient as stock. The major stator lead tests appear to be fine (AC output, resistance, leg shorts and ground tests ok.)
Here's what I've done so far:
Replaced R/R connector
Cleaned battery ground
Added parallel wire from R/R white wire to positive battery terminal (added 0.3v)
Removed stator bullet connectors and soldered
Cleaned positive connections on starter relay and the bullet connection carrying charge current
I'm thinking that an R/R sense wire problem would drive higher battery voltage?
I'm going out to the garage now to run the full cold/hot troubleshooting analysis per Slims excellent guide, but would appreciate any feedback from you guys.
