    From what I understand and what I've been doing, exhaust gaskets are no longer utilized. A Permatex product is now the sealant to utilize instead---copper something. I'm away from my shop and I'm...

    You'll need to remove the flywheel, as the stator is beneath it. It requires a pretty heavy duty puller. Also, be careful not to utilize too long of puller attaching bolts. They will contact the...

    If the starter drive (Bendix) is defective, you do not remove the actual starter motor to do so. You open up the flywheel housing to replace the starter drive.

    Yup and if memory serves me correctly, that is exactly the temp rating of those that fail within the EMM.

    Thank you for sharing Bret!

    I've seen a few posts about the connecting screws working loose, but I've yet to hear of that capacitor actually failing. I suppose, it is inevitable as age is a...

    Did you check for shorts between the stator sections? Also, I neglected to have you check for shorts from each stator section to ground.

    OK, so all your stator section resistance measurements were zero, after a second or two? If so, that would be normal.

    How about the AC voltage measurements?

    Does it settle at zero and remain there, or does it flutter back to 15 - 30? It should settle quickly to zero and remain there. If it doesn't, I suggest you find another meter and re-run the tests.

    Your resistance readings are all high. If you hold the meter leads together, what does it read?

    Your AC voltage measurements are about right, with the exception of 4-9. That is half of what it...

    Ditto bfarnam. Also, a change in the exhaust system will impact the flow, which will, in turn, impact the fuel/air ratio required. As the fuel injection system is an open loop type, it will not...

    On the Virage i and MSX140s, it is right on top of the primary resonator and couldn't be easier to access.

    Disconnect the hose and remove the hose barb/orifice. Clean the screen with a fine wire brush gently. They'll be a decimal number stamped on it, which is the diameter of the internal orifice. I'll...

    In my industry, we moved away from applying dielectric grease to electrical contacts quite a number of years ago. I agree with the logic. It is an insulator and reduces the contact area between the...

    Did you ever clean the fuel pump intake screen (about the size of a dime)? I gathered from re-reading the thread, you replaced the pleated filter at the bottom of the fuel canister.

    The erratic and inconsistent DC voltages you are measuring are an indication of a failed EMM. However, you should check the stator before sending it in for repair. This is done by unplugging the...
