318 with Honda not charging

I have a 90' 318 with a GX620 Honda repower and recently it has quit charging the battery. I checked voltage with it running and it doesn't increase ,leading me to the charging issue. Any help you can give me on this would be appreciated. Thanks

I guess I would go here
to start and see what manuals I could find on the Honda. It appears to come with a 20A charging system which is equivalent to the Onan. I think your test so far is a good one... I don't know anything about the Honda but electromagnetics hasn't changed in a couple hundred years at least... my experience is the AC voltage from stator with engine running should be in the 20 --> 40 VAC range and vary with engine rpm. Since the Honda is not original, you'll have to see how the wiring was adapted to 318.
