You might not see anything on those leads for voltage with the engine running if there is no battery connected.
With it connected and reading battery voltage with the engine running, 13-14.5 vdc is what Id call a healthy stator.

It could be that your regulator/rectifier is bad, allowing the stator to overcharge and destroy your good batteries.
