      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.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
