16-14 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
If there is more resistance than shown in the table, or no
tester reading (infinity), the stator has an open lead and
must be replaced. Much less than this resistance means
the stator is shorted, and must be replaced.
Using the highest resistance range of the tester, measure
the resistance between each leads and chassis ground.
Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short,
necessitating stator replacement.
If the stator coil has normal resistance, but the voltage
check showed the magneto to be defective; then the fly-
wheel have probably weakened, and the flywheel must
