It would have nothing to do with that, since the stator is not an alternator. Current from the stator is a 1 way street to the R/R.
The biggest issue is it is not bathed in oil enough, coupled with a bad stock regulator location, and a old style regulator (shunt style). Another issue is the connectors from the stator to the R/R. Since they're not soldered, it eventually causes a point of resistance over time. Cutting them out and soldering helps.
