stator

Postby Neokcowboy » Wed Jun 19, 2013 10:22 pm



I have a 1984 Honda goldwing I just pulled the motor on it for the second time, to find that the stator I put in it has came loose again i torqued it to spec and even thread lock on it. Is there any thing else I can do to make sure this does not happen again. And what is causing it to come loose.

Which color thread lock did you use?

I used the green kind they told me it was the best. I am puzzle why this nut keeps coming loose.

Yes that should have worked as long as you torqued the nut, the other option would be a new lock nut. Are the threads messed up?

The threads on the nut the first time was messed up and I had to find a new nut (boy was that a chore since Honda does not carry this nut anymore) but the threads on the shaft were fine. I checked the threads on the nut and shaft this time and they are fine. I am seriously looking into doing the conversion to the geo metro alternator under the fairing. I am curious if I can pull the stator and the stator housing to eliminate the possibility of it ever coming loose on me again.Would it hurt anything to leave them out?

That would probably be the most reliable method. No, it will not hurt anything to take them out and convert to an alternater. Most people do that eventually to save the hassle of worrying about the stator. Good luck.

I have installed a poor boy on my 84 interstate. when the engine was out for stator replacement the stator had came loose and fell off. I removed all parts to the stator, not the starter gear, the bike runs real good without all the extra load.
