Wally World has it in the sewing dept.

 

Would that be the video of the guy with the scary teeth??

Keep us posted

I have the same problem loose magnets

I think these will hold just fine. Just be sure to clean well before. And make sure you have the magnets in the right order. It really is an easy fix!

I put ONE little magnet back in my Vanguard recently. Lots of them, only one loose. They set down in a little well to keep in place. A little hard to clean that out then, but we got it. Running and charging now. I put flywheel on next day. JB Weld and a pinch clamp.

Everyone beat me to it, but I used JB Weld Regular on the ones in Hulk II, 5 years and not an issue. Never used the JB Quick, I always have an extra 24 hours when working on the GT's. PS, works great on brake bands too.

Looks good Kenny! Have used JB Weld also to reattach magnets on an HM80 flywheel. You just have to make sure you get them in tight against the flywheel. Sometimes the clearance in there is pretty close and if they stick out too far it won't be pretty.

Best check out the "New Project" thread. Got a nice video in there!

my turn for the loose magnet trick. Mine's a KT19 on an Ariens. Only 2 came loose out of 6. I took the flywheel off and 2 were stuck to the stator. I assume they would have had to have been dragging themselves on the stator as I drove the tractor into the garage before I pulled the engine. 

I have tried to ID polarity and am confused; I thought that "opposites attract" but no matter which way I position them, they stick together, they do not repel no matter which ends I place together. I have tried both loose magnets  with each other and with the other ones still stuck within the flywheel.  So does that mean it won't matter?

 

 The problem I had with mine not charging and  blowing the fuse for the PTO and lights started right after I dropped a fuel pump bolt down between the flywheel and block. I expected to find that screw down in there bridging the stator somewhere but it must have evaporated somehow.... I never have found that errant screw.

Would that screw (1/4-20 machine screw) have caused the magnets to come off?  (I am thinking so)

and, would the magnets being stuck to the stator be my short or is the stator itself fried ???? (meaning that the detached magnets and dropped screw would be circumstantial and not relevant to the problem?

Those are questions I cannot answer! Try putting a magnet back into place on the flywheel, maybe that will give you an answer.

I have ohmed out the stator and between the two outer terminals (the ones that put out AAC) I have 0.7ohms. I have to glue the magnets back on and plan to fire it up before I put the engine back in just in case it does wind up being bad. This whole project is fighting me. I'll put up a thread on all of it later.

My latest repair involved removing the flywheel twice. I actually forgot to install the stator the first time, had it all buttoned up and was looking for the tins and saw the stator still on the bench. :hitting_self_roller:

ok all glued back on now, I bead blasted the inside of the flywheel before I put the JB on, and just as I got the 1st 2 clamped down I knocked a 3rd one loose across from the original 2.... so I emery clothed the spot for the 3rd magnet the best I could....

still looking for info on whether the stator is good or not yet,  given the multimeter readings I have gotten so far/// man there is a lot of screws holding the sheet metal to that engine.... I do not want to take it apart twice, and do not want to yank the motor twice so I gotta be sure all is right with this thing before that point...

well, I just touched a 4th magnet today and it fell off... I did that yesterday and the other 3 seemed solid.  so I took a hammer and flat punch and tapped magnet #5 and #6 off figured screw it, might as well reglue them all.... back in the blast cabinet to get the old residue off to hopefully get the best bond..... let's see..... for now I know it ain't getting put together today!

May as well fix it right! Usually, the service manual for your engine will give ohm readings for the stator.
