So, I've pulled my engine to replace some leaking gaskets. I took a look at my stator and saw some sticky goo on it that doesn't wipe off. It almost looks like the epoxy partially melted or oil got cooked on to it. Anyhow, resistance checks for the windings are within shop manual specs and they are open to the case. Before I pulled the engine, the electrics appeared to be working fine (once I got a MF battery in it). My LEDs (tail and turn lights) pulsate at idle a bit. This is the original 1986 stator 24,000 mi.
So, judging by the picture, do the coils in the upper part of the picture look bad enough to replace the stator? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
