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 topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

5. By starting your own topic, 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 topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

  • testing stator

    model # OC106680100 MercuryWhat's the best way to check the stator on my merc ? The top two cyls are'nt firing so I started with the stator and the rear starboard side of the stator is leaking what looks like dried glue out of the pick-up.

      Re: testing stator

      I'm definitely not an expert, but am trying to troubleshoot a stator problem of my own.If you put an ohm-meter on the stator leads, you should get a resistence that you can look up in the manual to compare. If it is cooked (and it doesn't sound good to me) the resistance will probably we off the scale. You can also check for a short to ground, which is bad. But look in a manual to see the specified values.cheers,mike

        Re: testing stator

        Its a 1989 model. Swap the coils around and see if the problem moves. If you have some firing, most likely is a powerpac problem. Look at the link for troubleshooting. Stuff comming out of the stator is not a good sign. Mercury Troubleshooting

          And that dried-glue goo is something else! It's impervious to everything that don't desolve the stator, dist cap and other plastics.I think it's one of those "merc part#yadayada water shield coating" or something, but it is a bear to remove.It does repell water better than anything else,as it also does everything else.I was going to mention the diostributor arangement, but I think that year doesn't have one. But it's obvious Merc used the same goo.

              the top two cyls do start firing once you get the rpm's up to about 4000

                THE STATOR PUT OUT HIGH @LOW VOLTAGE.MY FORCE 120 WOULD NOT IDLE NO MATTER WHAT I DID .ONCE I GOT INTO GEAR AT HIGH SPEED IT RAN GREAT.WHEN BACK TO IDLE SPEED IT WAS OVER.TURN OUT TO BE THE STATOR.BUT IT IS EASY TO CHECK WITH A OHM METER.IF YOU NEED A STATOR AT A GOOD PRICE CHECK OUT www.seilermarine.com

                  That's what this one is doing . I kind of figured it was the stator . This all started when the fuel pump went south . Just a hole in the water.
