"So i took the flywheel off today and it seems on my stator, the black coils oozed their backing down it and onto the timer base. The base froze and now i have it free to move but it still has that stuff on it. Can i clean it up and reuse it? What does it rotate on to make it work? Why would the stator just melt like that? The motor ran perfectly before the timer base froze. I also noticed the metal points on the stator were rusty. Would that cause the overheat?
At WOT the tach jumps around and goes to zero somtimes intermitently. Does this have something to do with it?
And lastly. I need my boat for this weekend. Would i be able to get as much of that nylon stuff off as i can and reuse if for a weekend?"
