What is correct reading for Sportsman 570 Stator test?
Latebird when you say “fill” the plug with dielectric grease how much do you actually mean? I thought just a film inside without grease on terminals was correct.The plug usually melts due more to a poor connection between the terminals than anything else - fill the connector with dielectric grease to exclude water and oxygen to promote an electrically solid connection and reduce the probability of the connectors corroding and causing a 'hot' connection. But, a failing reg/rec can cause a high current draw lead to melting. Keep in mind, the higher the AC voltage the lower the amperage on the wires - the lower the amperage the lower the wattage (heat).
Just looked into this a little more and it’s a bit of an online sh*t storm. Your probably right in your application of grease, seems as though more were more inline with you. The thing is, I had applied it the way you described,but had come across that video and it got me wondering. Back to globs of grease I guess.
