I have tested numerous regulator/rectifiers and even some good ones test bad and even some bad ones have tested good.......
So the test I rely on for those now;
if the stator is working properly, the wiring is good, the battery is good yet the charging sytem still doesn't work properly- put in a new regulator/rectifier
Stator is super easy to check, but you can actually just loook at them and tell if they work or not
battery is super easy to test as well, but even easier if you have a good charger and a load tester
wiring is far more difficult and time consuming as you need to remove a bunch of shit to access it readily
reg/rect suck to test and the tests are often inconclusive or wrong- so don't even both IMO.....
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
