If you do get 28 or above AC volts check the ground wire/strap on the voltage regulator for corrosion, Also check for battery voltage on the center wire in the regulator plug with the key in the run position.

If stator test OK, Regulator ground is good and there is voltage to the center regulator wire replace the voltage regulator.
When checking for the "battery" voltage/center wire does the engine need to be running?

It can be but doesn't have to be, Your checking with the key switch in the run/on position......
