      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Stator coil on a 25hp evinrude

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I’ve shoveled the end of the driveway four times today. I left the shovel down there for them. No one has used it after crossing. Thankfully it’s melting time next week.  Standing down there and one of them pulls up onto the mound, stops, rips off and throws all the snow back. Our driveway is uphill. Without that space, the car doesn’t get up. Plus, just another pile for the homeowner.   Before this weekends snow, it had melted down to the grass. Yep. Grass dragging ditch riders we had. Luckily there’s enough ice on the driveway on most spots. Everyone is right about it being a right of way...common courtesy to pull up onto the highway seems to have been lost. This gives snowmobiles a bad name.  I shouldn’t need to call the ‘club.’ They can see my driveway when they fly over it....get the problem?  Not everyone is ripping through like this. Some obviously have respect and work over the snow easy.
    • Looking at throwing a front hitch on my truck and picking up a plow, mostly for my house and a couple others within a few miles of me.  Would also like to bring it to the Cabin a few times a year but they all say max travel speed is 45 mph.  Is this just due to over heating or are there other issues it could cause?  Curious if I could just throw it on the rear hitch for highway driving.  That would solve the overheating issue. I have a trailer if needed but would rather not have to drag that around if I don’t have to.
    • Cub, at least the one in Inver Grove Heights has been having whole frozen ducks for 99 cents/pound. I went back and got a couple more yesterday.
    •   Drove home from the Park and Go last night  at 11:30. (after digging out) *grumble grumble*
    • 8" inches last night. We'll save yea some!    
    • Keep in mind fellas they are noted for their rabies propensity.  Don't get paranoid, but be alert.
    • We got snow.  8" Thursday and 8" last night. With 4 driveways to clear I'm getting my riding time on the wheeler.
    • Luckily I don’t have starlings where I live, or house sparrows. The holes on the house I’m buying are designed to prevent starlings from getting inside. I don’t know how effective that is, but like I said, no starlings here
