    Question Popped 15amp then fuse up in smoke

    After reading for hours last night have come to the conclusion that after popping the 15amp fuse on mpem and in other box after about a 5min ride l repleaced them to get back to the ramp and popped both almost straight away, so used a bit of ciggy paper on the both to get me to the ramp and got going only to burn the mpem fuse box cover(WARNING TO OTHERS DONT DO IT) with smoke everywhere you think the worst, but with miniaml damage it still works, so after all the reading have isolated the cause to being the stator when its connected it pops the fuse.
    So l pulled it all down to find the stator stinks and every 3rd stator bit has turned dark brown in colour, so this has to be my problem right?
    Battery was also below 10 volts at end of ride when it was only charged weekend before last, would not even turn motor over.

    If l can get some opinons it would be great.

    First tip you shoulda got a tow cause you may have smoked the mpem also like rq said replace the stator-I would hold out on the rectifier because I have seen alot of starter bendix failures cause fragment to short out the stator unless you see no evidence of debris,on some models the mpem has the rectifier inside it.What model are we speaking of?

    Rectifier is in the mpem, prolly chunks of bendix in the stator replace the stator and see if the mpem is fried, I have a mint stator if needed
