Uppso, bad, rubbish, FUBAR, Up Shi..'s creek.....Pardon my ignorance, but what is a u/s stator?
yes, running the oil level too low for long periods and drawing a lot of current can/will contribute to stator winding failures. the oil is used to 'cool' the stator.is that cos the oil cannot cool it as well. Its hot in Spain and it's done over 100000kms so it;s had a tough life.
Even though the frame and motor are tied together, you can't count on the frame because of corrosion, or distance. I have added additional ground wires from the engine to the frame because I was seeing several ohms resistance.Dave, what is the differance between an engine ground and a frame ground, I would have thought they were the same as the engine is bolted to the frame.
