My tool

Postby littlebeaver » Fri Mar 20, 2015 2:10 pm



I made a tool some time ago to test the wires for the stator, keeps the wires in place for me...
three yellow wire go inside,, left to right 1,2,3 shoot someone could use a piece of 1/2 pvc pipe and it should work well for a holder, make the job easier as sometimes the wires move around, I don't like that..because you have to poke it and hold it...

1,2 in this photo while engine is running, then 2,3 and then 1, 3 to test output of stator, don't go electrocute yourself now :shock: .. :shock: :shock:
see fella's the wood helps while pushing down on the wires as it acts as a backing.. Nice... :D another Beave special that I kept a secret.. As always do as you wish but be careful...My stator is shot... :shock: That big fuse in front of the battery is my fuse for my alternator conversion..

Really had me wonering what site I was on with that header. :lol: I make lots of little, what I call "sh*t riggers", to help get things done. Making tools is the best part of doing the job, and you can save them away for the next time you do it or help someone else out. Changed a tire on a young guy's (40s) dirt bike and got to show him a few tricks so he can do it himself the next time. ;)

that's right man,,, for example I use 3/4" wooden blocks that are sanded nicely to keep the tire down in the lower area of the rim( well), without that a guys if gonna have a fight on his hands...And I use vinyl siding for pieces to protect the rim,, All kinda tricks man to make life easy,, I never sweat it...I do car and bike tires all the time.. :D this little tool made checking these wires simple..Some of these guys may not think much of it but I do things the easy way.. :lol:
