Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Stator problem on Force 125 hp.

    I was having problems with the firing on my 125 Force. After going through all steps to syncronize and time the ignition, the problem still existed. After checking the coils and modules,I found a burnt/broken wire on the stator. A spot between two of the small coils,on the stator, has burnt both coils on the inside. Would the trigger automaticaly be bad? Is there any way to test the trigger? Can you tell me where to find a new stator on an online source? PS. The burnt wire has broken away from the stator.

    WWW.Rapair .com for stator, I think there sites list dealer, they may sell retail from site. You did not say what year, and may need to know if blue pack and coil or black pack and coil. Timer should be ok, check with meter. How may 214s have you typed?
    Help somebody every day, if you can.

      Clanton; I have only typed one other. Listed as "Timing for 125". Here are the specs; model#1258F6A, serial#1253 US Marine 1987. I have finaly found and purchased a shop manual which led me through to the stator prob. after setting evrything else. Any more info will be much appreciated.

        Call me slow but I just realized your question about the 214's. I never typed any but got one from the Marine Corps.

          I forgot to include the color of the modules and coils. Black is the color of the modules and coils. When I was going through some of my own tests,the #3 & #4 plugs were not firing. Thought that the coils or modules might be the problem,so I swaped the quick connect plugs from the stator and trigger. The plugs going to the first module,I sent to the socond module and vise versa. The #3 & #4 plugs started firing without any hesitation. I am hoping that the stator is the only problem.

            IF YOU SWAP THE STATOR WIRE AND ON THE MODULAR OR C-D AND 3 @ 4 CYLINDER START TO FIRE AND 1 @ 2 CYLINDERS WON'T FIRE IT IS THE STATOR.TRY www.seilermarine.com for parts

              I appreciate the confirmation on the stator. I did try (seilermarine.com) and a few other sites that I had found. Noone has been able to find one. I have found a shop localy that will order it for me. It is supposed to be in on 7-12. Thanks again for all of the help and all the advise.
