@'bant - Thank you for the update. So based on your new battery it seems like at idle with no lights I should be reading 7v. Mine was only reading 6.5v as I remember so something is for sure wrong. I will put the battery charger back on and see what kind of amps it is pushing after charging for a while. Maybe the battery has gone bad on me. Better to rule it out now and know for sure. I was thinking a little more about it and when I had the volts tested the reading would increase as revs increased. So that should mean that the generator is producing power but maybe just not enough at the lower rev range at idle? Maybe worn brushes or faulty wiring. My uncle also brought up a question about the capacitor. He explained that a friend of his had trouble with a jeep that ran on points and it was because the capacitor would overheat and cause the ignition to stop working. once it cooled down everything would start working again. I don't know much about the ignition and points yet (still learning) but could the usage of the lights cause the capacitor to overheat causing the stalling issue?
