Default mower problems...egh

I fired my stator in my john deere the other day. I bought a new one to the tune of 60 beans and fried that one shortly after running the mower apparently the regulator is shot and that is burning up stators. I was able to find a guy an hour away that had a used stator and a used reg. picked up both for $40. Well, installed it and nothing was coming out of the stator . turns out that the literature I was following on how to test the stator was WRONG! Bahahahaha! Damm-it!

Lets go back a few steps, the brand new stator that had burned up I tired fixing. only one winding was burnt so I cut the wire, took a good piece from the original stator and rewound it, soldered it up. It did not work, but I had bad info on the testing procedure. Fast forward after bought used stator and proper way to test. IT WORKS! Still a little pissed casue I dropped 40 beans on used parts when my fix had worked. ah-well. But now the used regulator is bad and I will need to buy anew. Another $60!

But with it being a holiday weekend ya would think you would get more business as people are leaving and have so much to do anyways.

He can't mow when he's without a mower. He has one on the back burner, and the one he relies on is the one having the stator issues.
