JRWodden do you already order it?
I have not ordered it yet ... to get the price down I have to order in bulk and need 10 guys or so to make it work...
The kit would be a piece of the insulating material 12" x 3" x 1/4" thick and four "zip ties" made from stainless steel.
Right now I only have 4 guys interested....
Let me just say going in to this, that I am reasonably sure that the header heat is not the "root cause" of our problem, but the added heat can not be a good thing ... it seems to me that for $20 it's a good idea in any event...
I have two questions for guys with failed stators:
1) were the fried windings at the bottom?
2) have you removed your R/R and inspected for solid (electrical) ground contact?
2b) If you have not done so, would you take a look and tell us what you find?
