I will try that to remove the carbon, thanks!

Definitely not a 1.25 or 3 amp! That is a 15amp stator. Usually they have black leads, but maybe it was a PK thing with the red. You should have had a regulator that those leads connected to???? Or has it ever charged since you had it?
I usually just use a dull putty knife to scrape carbon off, but spraying it with gasket remover first softens it up to come off easy.

Thanks Daniel! The leads went to a rectifier, not a regulator.

EDIT: Yes, it charged when I got it in August of 2011. It charged fine up until about April, then I would have to charge it about every three weeks. It slowly got worse and worse to where I only got a few hours of use before it would not run. And, only about an hour of that time was good strong running.

I used a can of carb cleaner to soften the crud, and a plastic putty knife, and small dremel with wire brush atachment. 2. be carefull drilling out that screw, but 3 should hold the stator fine. 3 that looks like the one I have.... If interested I would be willing to sell mine. truthfully I don't remember what it came off of, so some size measurements (Inside . Outside diameter) to make sure mine would work first. I count the same number of coils on both, so that is a plus.


I appreciate the offer, but this is something I would rather just buy new. I am sure your's works just fine, though.

With just a rectifier, it has to charge full rate all the time. I would consider getting a regulator/rectifier so it won't overcharge the battery on extended run times.

Can you explain a little better? Can my rectifier also be a regulator? Or are you saying I need both?

You know the youtube that Larry posted shows what appears to just be a 4 pole bridge rectifier. They turn the AC into DC, but I see no regulator in this system. A regulator/rectifier combo only has 3 poles....2 AC poles, and one DC that goes to the battery.
Can you post a close-up pic of your rectifier?

The rectifier needs to have a good ground.The stators and flywheels are specific to each other and can't be interchanged as far as 10 and 15 amp are concerned.

Here is a shot of the rectifier. The two terminals without wires are for the stator, the other terminal goes to BOTH the ignition, and the light switch.

Ryan, that is a regulator/rectifier. And it is a 15 amp system. If you need a new regulator/rectifier, this is the cheapest place I've found to get them, but do check with our site sponsors first. This one is $39 delivered to your door.

Now that we know how many amps the system is, does anybody know a part number?

Thanks Daniel! But, this is another thing I would rather buy new. I don't think I need to replace it anyway.

That is a brand new aftermarket regulator/rectifier. No part # on the stator, but I'll look.

Here is a new stator on ebay, and it's from the same "Pat's Small Engine" as I linked you to the regulator.

Thank you Daniel! I will order a stator, and head gasket! Maybe I will finally have my tractor back!

I have bought from Pat in the past, and likely will again. Good service.
