  • Hurco550: i dont have spark on the tw either, but i think my stator shit the bed. Im showing no resistance which makes me think its got a wire broke somewhere
    Nov 12, 2018, 15:33:31
  • Hurco550: The strange thing is, even my spare reads the same. I wouldnt think the odds would be that great of having two shot ones sitting there, but who knows
    Nov 12, 2018, 15:34:24
  • advCo: That is odd
    Nov 12, 2018, 15:58:23
  • advCo: Is it a 2 coil stator, one primary and one for lighting?
    Nov 12, 2018, 15:58:51
  • irk miller: How are you testing the stator?  It should not show continuity between any lead and ground.  You should get resistance between windings.
    Nov 12, 2018, 15:59:31
  • irk miller: Also shouldn't show continuity between any lead and the stator body

  • cxman: Stan lee died now what ?
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:07:03
  • Maritime: RIP Stan. Sucks
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:16:52
  • Hurco550: oh, well i was testing it between the two leads going to the cdi
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:18:05
  • advCo: Does the manual give you a resistance chart? When I dealt with the FA50 stator they give you resistance values to check between the wires on each coil
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:29:17
  • Hurco550: the manual says to read between the red and brown leads from the source coil and gives me a resisrance of 400-450 ohms
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:37:38
  • Hurco550: resistance*
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:37:56
  • advCo: and you're getting nothing on both? sure your voltmeter is on the right setting? lol..been there
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:47:52
  • Hurco550: haha i have too, BUT i used the same setting to read both pickup coils i have, which both read within spec
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:48:57
  • advCo: I guess its possible you have two bunk windings but seems pretty unlikely
    Nov 12, 2018, 16:51:49
  • Hurco550: thats what was making me think i was testing something wrong. Seemed strange that they would both be fried, and from my research, it doesnt seem that they are a really super common failure point. Id rather it be a toasted stator than a toasted c.d.i. though, i can get a chinaman special stator for $60 shipped

  • irk miller: All that time I thought I had a bunk field coil and it turned out that I missed the part in the manual where it says to disconnect the points wire to time it.  So when I was getting constant ground, I thought the field grounded out, which is what they do when they go bad. LOL

  • JustinLonghorn: Morning muchachos
    Today at 08:00:46
  • Maritime: Morning. Anowing like a mofo here
    Today at 09:10:09
  • Maritime: Snowing lol
    Today at 09:10:20
  • advCo: Almost cold enough to snow here lol
    Today at 09:15:45
  • Hurco550: we have a bunch of fog here and it feels like a cool spring morning. Weird.
    Today at 09:59:51
  • advCo: I need to insulate the shop this winter.
    Today at 10:05:39
  • advCo: and get a heater.
    Today at 11:14:05
  • Maritime: Sucks. Its going ro tyrn to rain then deop to like 0 F overnight and freeze it all. Drive to work tomorrow will suck balls
    Today at 11:14:09
  • Maritime: My heater shit the bed. Need to get another
    Today at 11:15:32
  • advCo: we might actually get some flurries here
    Today at 11:21:57
  • advCo: I definitely dont miss the overnight freezes living in New England. Here the ground pretty much stays warm enough to keep everything thawed
    Today at 11:25:07
  • advCo: Pain in the ass here is dealing with all the water connections to the house, pool etc. nothing is winterized
    Today at 11:25:29
  • canyoncarver: We had 6 inches of snow at my house yesterday morning.  It was 15 degrees this morning
    Today at 11:41:01
  • JustinLonghorn: Fuck all that noise
    Today at 11:47:08
  • advCo: I like the snow. Especially now that I don't work outside in the winter anymore.
    Today at 11:49:06
  • advCo: I would like to do some van van riding in the snow.
    Today at 11:49:19
  • JustinLonghorn: I just hate commuting during the winter.
    Today at 12:13:13
  • canyoncarver: On your bike?
    Today at 12:14:42
  • JustinLonghorn: At all. Ha
    Today at 12:14:54
  • JustinLonghorn: I drive the I-270 corridor, voted worst commute in the country a handful of times.
    Today at 12:15:37
  • canyoncarver: ew.
    Today at 12:57:23
  • canyoncarver: My commute is getting worse.  Seems more folks are moving to the mountains and commuting into town like I do.
    Today at 12:58:11
  • advCo: I'd do the same
    Today at 13:34:59
  • advCo: Weird, every time I click the "Home" button at the top left corner here it brings me to a page with the DTT logo 16x16 px and nothing else
    Today at 13:39:26
  • canyoncarver: Yeah, but they are really starting to affect my lap times.....
    Today at 13:54:24
  • JustinLonghorn:
    Today at 14:11:13
  • JustinLonghorn: Y'all ever tried those?
    Today at 14:12:10
  • advCo: I have not. But they look nifty
    Today at 15:05:14
  • Maritime: just snow blowed shit in my airboot. foot is a little cold. Magoo did most but he's still a little short to run the blower easily
    Today at 15:43:22
  • Hurco550: jussy, those are handy, but your ALWAYS fighting grinder dust with any magnetic thing in a welding shop, thats my only qualm them them
    Today at 17:03:11
  • advCo: Yeah, I have some of those triangular magnetic deals but they're so covered in metal dust they barely work
