Okay! Here ya go! The PO had hooked one of the stator wires to the B+ terminal. Found that when I tore it down. The regulator mounts on the firewall with the connections down, so you can't see how thing are hooked up.

From the looks of the corrosion on the connector blades my guess is high resistance caused the connections to overheat.

The stator seems to be okay according to the ohm meter. I'm sure that AC voltage going into a DC output did wonders to the insides!

And that was the start of a famous and expensive boo-boo!

 

Are you going to need a new one, Kenny?

Not sure what the engine will be going back into. Would one of the newer smaller regulators work here?

I've replaced two of those Kenny using the newer small type like used on the newer Onans, I just make sure it's a 20 amp version. As long as it has AC/B+/AC, tractor doesn't care what it looks like or its size. I need to add a 12v fan though, my winch gets the regulatory pretty hot.

I didn't think it would make much difference, as long as the regulator was big enough. I am going to pull the pan off the engine and see if I can go to a smaller pan. Then I'll know what is going on.
