    I checked it with the meter and seems ok but with engine running at the battery it shows 12.4 volts and dose not change with the rev up of the motor

    12.4 is no good should be around 14 v at 2000 rpm, they also will show voltage and not produce amps that actually charge the battery. Sounds like a bad regulator. Cheap fix and very common

    Check the plug between the stator and regulator. Some of the early ones would fill up with oil migrating from the primary through the wires (no joke). Also check the regulator grounding. As Wide said, though, if the stator measures correct VAC then it sounds like a bad regulator if it's only reading 12.4VDC.
