99 XLT Special, power output

2 posts in this topic

I own a 99 xlt special, this is the aggressive body style with dual headlights, and I blew the motor in it last winter. I replaced it with a 95 xlt motor that I had. When I use my hand warmers the lights go real dim. Not enough power output from the 95 motor to run everything. What can I do change this? Would changing magneto's increase my wattage? Looking for any suggestions. Thanks,

Kevin

You could try putting the stator and flywheel on the blown motor on the other one and try that. I'm not positive but they might have increased the power on the newer one to be able to run the extra lights on the hood of the aggressive. (Lazer light's) I believe they were called. Just make sure you line up the notch on the stator with the notch on the crankcase when you install it otherwise the timing will be off.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
