stator wiring

Post by mothballs » Mon Feb 17, 2014 6:59 pm

I just picked up an '84 interstate, the stator has been replace a few years back but the three wire plug for the stator beside the battery is still there. I know this plug was notorious for melting from the heat produced and is often direct wired to prevent this meltdown. This bike still has the three wire plug in place and is totally melted. My question is if I cut out this plug and direct solder the wires together does it matter what order the wires are soldered? The three wires coming from the stator I assume produce the same output so does it matter how their soldered to the wires on the other side of the plug?
Thanks, Dave :mrgreen:

No order.Its 3 phase AC.
Just get a good solder joint.Overheated copper often has oxidation on it.
Scrape all the copper clean and use plenty of flux .

Make sure you use a good quality shrink tube for each joint, not just a couple wraps of tape. You want to make sure the joints stay clean and dry as well as being well insulated from each other . No short cuts here please. 8-)
