Original Factory Mercury Marine Stators

Your outboard stator is the "powerhouse" of your outboards ignition system.
Most Mercury Outboard Stators perform two important functions
1. They provide voltage to your switchbox or CDM's.
2. They charge your vessel's battery(s).

A faulty or failing stator can cause one or more symptoms.
1. Engine fails to run and has no spark.
2. Engine is hard to start especially after sitting from a run.
3. Engine is low on power or has a "miss".
4. Engine stalls frequently.
5. Engine does not recharge the vessel's battery(s).
6. Vessel's battery(s) keep going dead or have too low of voltage.

Stators fail!
Stators can fail for one or more of the following reasons.
1. Age! Old stators fail from internal failures from temperature fluctuations and/or corrosion.
2. Overheating. An engine that is running too hot will "overheat" the stator.
3. Overcharging. Bad batteries, bad battery cables, poor connections and wrong style of batteries can cause the stator to get too hot from attempting to charge the batteries.

Replacing Your Stator

First... properly diagnose your ignition before assuming your stator is faulty.
The stator is located under the engine's flywheel.
Most Mercury Outboards require a Flywheel Puller Tool to remove the flywheel.
Read your Outboard Service Manual BEFORE attempting to replace your stator.

We do NOT recommend installing aftermarket parts.
