Whatever you do,do NOT use a hammer to knock the flywheel loose.Get yourself a good crows foot Puller and pull it off.
If you don't you'll damage the threads or even break the threaded end off of the Crank.
It may just need a good cleaning under the flywheel or you could be missing a couple magnets on the flywheel.If it's charging at 26 I would suspect the stator is working correctly and you have missing or broken magnets on the flywheel and alot of fine grass clippings and dirt build up.

It would take me about 20 minutes to pull the engine with wrenches and 10 minutes tops with an Air Impact gun.
It's not a big deal to remove an engine from a Garden tractor.
I can take the engine out of my Cub in less than 5 minutes and completely take it apart in under 30 minutes

1) The 28vac test has an RPM spec of 3400-3600 rpm. Were you running it fast enough?
2) It takes 13-14v to charge a battery. The regulated dc voltage will be about half the ac output. What is the dc output on the center terminal of the regulator? You may need to pull the center wire out of the plug to test this. With 26vac going in, I'd expect to see something close to 13vdc coming out.
3) The center wire should have battery voltage with the key on-engine off. Does it? After starting, the voltage should go up. Does it?
4) The regulator has to ground through the case by the mounting screws. Some regulators on plastic shrouds have a seperate ground wire. An ohm test between the regulator case and battery ground should be almost 0 ohms. Is it?
