    Que6977, welcome to the HDTalking forum and your 1st post. Testing the charging system is pretty straight forward...see the link from the Self Help Tips regarding charging system testing.

    A non-invasive method to verify condition of the stator is to smell the gear oil for smells other than lube, a strong burnt smell indicates one or more of the stator coils is shorted and burning. Then do the rest of the electrical measurements regarding the non-powered resistance testing of the stator windings and such for proper ohm readings winding to winding, and open reading with respect to ground (leakage or shorted rectifier/diodes or windings). An inexpensive Digital Multi-meter may be had at Harbor Freight for $1.99 a bargain...specially with their 20% discound coupon in your local newspaper or magazine!
