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 did not do the repower , I purchased it that way 2 years ago. I am not sure if it has the original regulator or not, where is it located ?
Yeah I took a quick look and didn't see the original regulator, but I will have to spend more time chasing the wires from the flywheel and check voltage like you said. I will keep you updated ,thank you
I have had a chance to check VAC on the two wires coming from the charging coil by the flywheel and I am on getting a .9 reading and not much change in throttle position, which leads me to believe I have a faulty coil. The regulator /retifier is a honda unit with 6 wires so should be a 20 amp. Anymore thoughts on my coil or am I doing the test wrong? I put the two leads on the wires from the flywheel with the tractor running and volt/ohm meter set to VAC. Thanks
Thanks for all the help guys. I am sure that because I don't have barely any voltage from the stator coil , that it is bad and need to be changed!
