Default Still no juice 12.5kw kohler

I have been trying for several weeks now to get the generator in my bird running. Her is what I have done.

Checked to see if their is voltage at the control box for the exciter current. there was 8v dc on the pin that the schematics indicated was exciter current.

cleaned the brushes and rotor

Put in a new voltage regulator.

Still no AC

Does anyone know if 8v is enough to start the ac field??

I'm looking for any other ideas. I have a new control box I ordered from england and thought I could try that but as far as I can read the schematics, as long as the exciter current is there thats the only really important thing that is neede from the control box for ac generation. any help would be great....
