Car is not charging battery, alternater is putting out 13 .5 vault on tick over.

A little confused by your description, is it a generator (dynamo) or an alternator.
Generators tend to be a little low in output volts at low rpm.

check again but this time at the battery, its quite possible for an alternator to show a charging voltage but connection issues mean you dont see it at the battery,

why do you say its not charging? is it because you are suffering from a flat battery, that could be a charging issue, a drain on the battery or even a knackered battery
