Stator coil on a 25hp evinrude

6 posts in this topic

Bought a project boat and motor this past winter. The Motor is a 1978 evinrude 25hp. Kid said the stator was bad and the shop wanted $400 to fix it. Took it apart and stator was cracked a bit but nothing with to much wear. Found a used strator off of hsolist for $50 that matched it what seemed to be perfectly. Was a bit jittery about spending the money on a used one but it looked good plus a new one runs close to $300. Put it in and started right up. Just had the boat in the water for the first time and the motor started right up. Runs great. Up and down the lake we go. Ran it for about 45 minutes. Was letting my oldest kid drive and started to seem slugish. Told him to go full throttle. Said he was? Then saw smoke. Told him to shut it down. Pulled the hood off and smoke was coming from under the fly wheel. Took it home and pulled the fly wheel and the stator is cooked and worn? Impeller was pumping water and everything else on the motor was warm but not hot.

Anybody have any experience with stators?

Electric start model?

Yes.

Can't figure out why it would have worn down. Have checked for slop in the plate and shaft. There is more than enough clearance between the flywheel and strator. Am wondering if the stator got hot and expanded enough to make contact with the flywheel? Or if there is something off just enough on the shaft or plate to have caused it to rub on the flywheel and then heat up?

Are the windings and pocking burned? Sounds like it may have shorted. But the question would be, could the rectifier cause it? Since the guy told you the stator was bad to begin with, and you smoked another one, the rectifier could be causing the problems.

Not sure what the rectifier is but am wondering the same thing if there is a problem causing the strator to go? Do not want to put $300 into a new strator and have it do the same thing.

The stator that was in it when I got it wasn't burned at all but the black casing was cracked in several spots. Wouldn't spark. Put the used one I bought off hsolist in and had great spark. After running it and burning it up took the flywheel off and it looks like it got shaved by the flywheel because there's a dust like particle from the strator all under the flywheel. Checked both the flywheel and the strator with a micrometer and there doesn't seem to be any wear spots on either? The wires in the strator and going to it are all fine but there is a burnt electrical smell to it?

Just did a bit of reading and from what I understand the rectifier can cause the stator to go bad. Man that stinks. A $30 part that can make a $300 part go bad. Sounds like it's a good idea to replace the rectifier when replacing a stator even if the rectifier is good. Seems like part throwing but what do you do risk a $300 part for the sake of a $30 part.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
