Bad diode in the generator. Have it load tested with a tester that measures "ripple". If ripple is high you are likely to also find the most output it will deliver is exactly one third of its rated capacity. That's barely enough to keep up with the fuel pump, ignition system and lights with nothing left over to charge the battery or run other accessories.
