those three yellow wires should not just be twisted and taped, they need to be soldered and properly shrink tube sealed to ensure proper contact , do the tests described above if you have a dead stator then you still have options. let us know what you find out and we will go from there. 8-)

I just did this very thing last night to a 79 the stator finally check out Good.
you must be careful NOT to let your hands touch the wire or the test leads, you will get a false reading. trust me, :?

!!!! The stator puts out a potentially LETHAL amount of voltage/current when the engine is running. Your hands should be NOWHERE near the stator wires when testing the stator with the engine operating.

Ok. :) Yes, anytime you are measuring resistance, putting your fingers on the leads will distort the reading. The sweatier your fingers, the more it will alter the reading.
