    Welcome back

    Was the plastic battery cover missing, allowing the electrical box to short to the battery top?

    I had the battery cover on it. It must of shorted out while the ski was on the trailer going home. it ran fine there. I looked at the ski the next day to find it burned. if i were on it while it happened , I would of smelled something burning, along with a great loss of horsepower.
    Working on it tomm to pull the engine. how about this also....the engine is not connected to the engine plate. I can lift the front of the motor up and your not suppose to be able to do that. The bolts to hold it togther are underneath the engine plate not holding,,, must be stripped out down there. !.....DOH! still ran great too.lol too funny.





    P.S. Maybe that was the source of my polaris "rattle"?

    The engine plate is also the source for your battery ground. If it's loose, you had a poor connection. That would lead to a burnt up ground wire for the stator.
