    Help Please on Stator R&R

    2001 Virage, I need some direction about replacing the stator. The service manual seems to be missing the section on that.

    Thanks

    Sapsucker.

    Thanks, but I have looked pretty thoroughly through the manuals and posts and did not see it. I just may have missed, can you lead me to the area exactly?

    Fuel injected?
    Two or three cylinder engine?

    Hi K, he's sure not much of one for details huh??
    sapsucker, have you verified you have a stator issue and not a battery??

    Thanks for the help! 2 stroke carb and I have went through all the steps for the electrical box component tests. All seem to be o.k. I am going to replace all the components anyway. From what the other posts say, the cdi module needs to be replaced, plug wires, plugs etc. I did not test the stator but I did have the 7-9 volts going to the stator. The machine has been great, I was just going down the lake after bringing out from winter storage and it quit. No spark, plugs are new/battery new. Ran great for about 30 minutes. Hope this info helps, I was thinking that the 2000 model is very similar, I might be able to check that model's manual for that section. Again thanks. Any info would be great.

    CDI modules can fail, of course, but other than the 1996-1999 years (for which there is an Update Kit available), they tend to be fairly reliable.

    How did you decide the CDI was needing replacing?

    Why pull the stator if you have not tested the coil ohms yet?

    2 cylinder, ph..craft has a testing procedure that I went thru, it said that the cdi with the red epoxy weren't reliable, personal preference to replace all including the stator. I have already bought all the parts. The machine only has 80 hours on it.. peace of mind. But I am just looking for a procedure for removing and replacing the stator. This site is awesome and you two are very informative and knowledgable. Thanks again

    Arrow How to remove the flywheel and magneto stator coils

    2001 Service Manual 9917163, pages 79-81 (steps 6-11)
    Or 2000 service manual 9916289, pages 148-150

    Where the service manual simply says "Install puller and remove flywheel", here is what it should have said...

    -------------------------
    It is common for the flywheel to be really stuck on the crank shaft snout.

    Use a good quality puller (so you don't bend it), and don't thread the bolts into the flywheel more than about 5 turns (3/8 inch).

    Remove the MAG spark plug, and hold your thumb over the hole while you hand turn the engine over. When you feel some compression starting, stop turning, and feed some clean rope down into the spark plug hole. The idea is for the rope to take up space so the piston cannot travel upwards, giving you something to work against when removing the flywheel.

    You need to keep the rope out of the exhaust ports inside the cylinder, which is why you hold your thumb over the plug hole. When you feel compression pressure, the ports are all covered by the piston

    Tighten the puller good and tight, then leave it for a few minutes. Often, just some time under tension will make it let go.

    When it does release, it can be violent, so be prepared for it. Put cloths or padding to protect the fuel tank and keep the oil pump and other stuff out of harms way.

    If you are doing this in the hull, either do not use torch heat (my suggestion), or be very careful. The fuel tank is right there.

    If you do apply heat, focus around the flywheel hub area should do it. Do not over heat, or you can damage the engine crank shaft rubber seals, which are right behind the stator. Again, if it is under tension, it will pop when it releases!

    When re-installing everything pay attention to the recommended torque values in the manual. Be very sure the drive slot for the oil pump drive fits with the oil pump.
    -----------------------------

    BTW, have you replaced the original Tempo brand fuel hoses yet?

    If not, now would be a good time to change them. They are known to cause carb clogging, which causes unexpected engine damage.

    And new fuel and oil filters, of course

    Now that is some information even if it may be a little too much! I have not replaced the fuel lines but will. I will also test to make sure that the stator has shorted. Man you guys are good and so nice. Thanks again and it is much appreciated.
