Default Some snowmobile electrical info!!!

I saw that one of the new members was having some electrical problems. It reminded me of this guys video's. Some great info for people that want to learn. Some of the newer sleds may be a little different but the theory is the same.
This guy also rebuilds stators for a reasonable price. You'll have to do some searching to get in touch with him. From his sweatshirt in the one video, I would guess he is in Michigan.

I watched his videos and my voltmeter shows nothing when I test the stator.
I had just rebuilt the carbs and changed out the fuel lines and fuel pump then had this happen. I was very disappointed and was hoping to be out riding it.
Thank you for thinking of me.

I did some searching and he lives in Flushing, MI. If you get on the Arctic Chat forums, he goes by the name of Blaine. If you find him on there you can PM him. Having a stator rebuilt by him may be easier and/or cheaper than a used replacement.

At least on the older sleds, the motors are a little easier to work on. I miss the days when you could open a hood and see everything.

Yeah that's the only concern I have about my new sled, no hood to raise, you have to peel off layers to get to the internal organs.

It's VERY frustrating right now. I bought a used stator and I did the Blaine test and it looks like this one is bad as well. I can't get any reading using my voltmeter set at 2000 or 200 . . . . . UGH!!!!!!
Getting ready to sell it if I can't get it running and of course I have an oddball stator that isn't used on many sleds.
I searched and searched online for one and I'm not buying a new one for $700 which is crazy.
Trying some other searches to see what I can find.
I'll send a message to Blaine to see what he thinks before I get rid of the sled.

They are also called The Sea Doo Clinic. Great people to work with. I'll get a number for you later.

Here's a link to their website.

Blaine sent me a you tube link to the correct stator, since I was basing my numbers off the wrong one... UGH
The used stator is in the range that is acceptable now I'm waiting on a few other parts and I hope to have it back up and running soooooon.

Thank you for the info for the other snowmobile shop.

I have to have it running before my son comes up in 2 weeks so we can go for a ride.

Just realized I have a 1992 Arctic Cat Performance Manual on my shelf. It has some electrical specs and all of the carb specs if you need me to look anything up.
