I took the wiring harness out today to fix some broken wires, rewrap in some new wire loom and generally clean things up. Most things are obvious, either by placement, wire colors, harness, etc... But of course there were a few wires that were no obvious - for those I marked them with a marker.

I go to reconnect the wires coming out of the stator... the clip, easy, then I come to three wires.. I marked these, and in my infinite wisdom when cleaning them I cleaned the marks right off. :rockon:

I've got three black wires coming out of the stator. They all look the same, same color/thickness, no color stripes that I can see. I've got three yellow wires that go into the wiring harness - again, same color, no stripes, etc...

At first though, I can plug any of them into any and it should work. Same colors, right? The logical side of me thinks these are +/-/GRND, so I really don't want to mess them up.

Any suggestions / ideas?

it doesn't matter which way three stator wires hook back up. that's the reason the aren't different colors.

Check those connections closely. They have a tendency to corrode and heat up. Many suggest using the dialectric grease on contacts. Some of us have braided these connections, soldered and shrink wrapped.

I plan to do this when I move the rectifier. Never heard of dielectric grease, though. Guess it won't matter once I solder it all together.
