1985 1200 LTD burn stator

Hello all!
Why my 1200 LTD burning stator? I have changed the stator twice and regulator once. Stator three conductors heats up when I start the engine.

Sorry I am unable to assist except to bump the issue to the top again.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Unplug the rectifier/regulator module...It is the direct connection to the 3 yellow Stator or wires.Test with a ohm meter the 3 yellow wires and battery negative..there should be no continuity..With the R/R module disconnected and the engine running,the yellow wires shoule no longer get hot.The rectifier/regulator module may be bad and can be tested of each of its 6 internal diodes...It must also have a good connection to ground and the battery power...The small black wire is switched ignition.
Those 3 yellow wires do provide AC power to the R/R module...each wire must carry about 125 watts of power...somewhere around 7 amps AC WHEN OPERATING NORMALLY.
