    1996 Polaris SLTX Stator Removal

    I'm not getting any spark on my 1996 SLTX. I haven't tested the stator yet, but if it needs to be replaced, do I have to pull the engine to do it?

    If not, what special tools do I need to get and where can I get them? I was reading in a tech manual about needing a flywheel removal tool.

    Is your battery fully charged? They won't start unless it's 12.6V. Also, I believe there is an updated charging system for those boats if you didn't get it already.

    I had run this ski for a couple hours, then it just died in the water for no apparent reason and wouldn't start again. Turns over like crazy but won't spark.

    I'll check the voltage and report back.

    Here's a picture of my CDI cracked open. Before I opened it, I noticed an oily substance on the bottom edge and when I got the box split open, that same gooey fluid was everywhere.

    Click on the picture and look towards the top to see it the best. I can't imagine this is normal.

    Also, while cranking, the battery voltage started out at 13+ (freshly charged) and never went below 11.1 volts.

    Hopefully, this is my problem. I really don't want to take the stator out. I want to ride this ski soon!

    The stator test is fairly simple so, I would do that first, and you might also test the kill switch while you are at it. Look in the tech section, all of the tests are there.

    If you need to change the stator, you can rent a fly wheel puller at Auto Zone (or buy one for around $20)

    Let us know what you find out.

    Yes , You will have to pull the engine....out...
    Don't try to put that flywheel Puller near that tank ..
    because will have to hit that end the puller with hammer to losen,
    the flywheel ...because that salt is going to eat ..away and stick the wooder key...to the crank..
    Because if you cause a spark near that tank....good bye!

    dont remove the motor......pull the tank and the sending unit out of the tank...remove the cover...buzz off the nut...put puller on.....impact it tight..if it doesnt come off...use a little heat where the crank and flywheel meet.....Ive done it several times..
