wanted: '01 stator

You can measure somewhere between 50 and 80 volts I think on the three 
pin connector across any two pins. Remember at that point it is AC. I 
toasted my stator, it was pretty obvious when I pulled the cover. If I 
remember right, I could measure decent voltage between two pins, but 
between either of those pins and the third pin the voltage was way 
lower. That is the burnt out coil. Also the output of the regulator was 
only about 12.5V. The end result of this was that I could run two days 
before the battery was so low it couldn't start.
