stator low voltage

Replaced the r/r and no go......
The stator has 0.7 ohms leg to leg and no continuity to ground.
But checking the voltage and I get 5vac at idle and 20vac at 5k rpm.
NOW WHAT?!?!

Sorry to hear that, but I agree with Denny: Sounds like a fabulous engine pull is in your future! It's really not such an ordeal, though, and besides, you've got all kinds of support here to tackle the job. Fire away with questions - we'll all have you back up and running in no time!

humm......looks like the biggest part of the project is getting the case to clear the frame.
Why not just modify the frame so that part of it is removable?

Some people have modified the frame rail, but I haven't seen any approaches that I believed would restore the structural integrity of the frame.

An experienced welder could put it back good as new.... of course getting a good weld with the engine in place would be a trick.

X3 on the stator.

The engine tilt sin't so bad, as long as you take your time and have the tools. I did mine in about 2 hours (but I am a full time auto mechanic).

Make sure your stator is made in the US or Canada. You can find them on ebay for about $100. you will also need the gasket,and would recomend soldering the 3 leads instead of crimping them. Gives you a better connection that won't be a suseptable to corrosion.

We're here for support!!
