    Engine removal for stator change or not????????

    Can the stator on a 1996 SL 700 be changed without removing the engine? If so how? There is No continuity between the Black & Purple wires {Exciter coils}. I think there needs to be 1200 ohms according to this site.Anybody know for sure?Where is the best place to buy the new stator?Thanks...

    it is much easier to remove the stator, with the motor out, and on the bench. you need to pull the flywheel, which requires a puller, and heat. i personally do not like doing this in the hull.

    i believe i have a new stator here for your 700

    give me a call a the shop next week.

    I would do it without removing the engine, it is easier on a bench but when you fit the engine back you need to realign it to the pump which is tricky without an alignment tool. I would remove the fuel tank and the front hood to get enough room to get in there and do the job, bear in mind like John said above sometimes removing a flywheel requires heat, a good flywheel puller, some physical strength and above all - patience!

    Make sure the bolts for the puller are grade 8 . Usually the flywheel doesn't come off easily and the bolts snap before it lets loose. or they get bent or they strip the holes out. Buy a impact driver to remove the 3 stator screws. you can get 1 at harbor freight for 3.00. much easier.

    Thanks for the replies, So does it look like my stator is bad from the lack of continuity between the black & Purple wires? Why the need for the impact driver?

    So you can remove the screws without stripping out the heads. I personally use a cordless impact driver. If you choose to do it this way, just be very gentle on the trigger or you will snap the screws.

    Definitely #3 for the intake grate and ride plate bolts. I use a #2 on carbs.
