My original Lucas Rotor is in good condition, but my stator is pretty beat up. Will it be alright to put a sparx stator over my Lucas rotor? Or should I try and find an original? Thanks for any guidance
For your cases try something like Loctite 515 which is an anaerobic gasket maker. Use only a little bit - a thin film. I cleans up real easy, doesn't stain anything easy, not messy to work with, removes real easy if you need to go back inside and, best of all, it works like a charm.
Can't help you with the Sparx sizing issue - never seen one. Your stator is repairable though. There's very little to go wrong unless you fried it. I'm betting the feed wires is what has you all concerned - the insulation has stiffened and the connection to the stator itself is so so. Replace the wires and don't forget to put a piece of loom over the outside.
Thanks for the tip Thirdbike,
There is another problem with my alternator... When the engine was dismantled before I purchased, the wire was cut right where it come out of the case. Would it be alright to splice that wire?
