The charging system needs checked before spending any more cash

Need to check resistance through the 3 stator legs versus each other and against ground. Also need to check AC output of the stator.

If that checks good then check the rectifier.

If both are good, then its typically a connection issue. However, a connection issue for the rectifier or stator usually creates heat and melts connectors and such so they are typically obvious.

All this can be done by buying an OEM service manual or by taking it to a MC mechanic.

Or, if you happen to have a VAT-40 or know anyone with a VAT-40, you can test your stator, generator, starter, and battery within about 5 minutes or so.
