    I damaged the stators primary coil taking the flywheel off. Im guessing i can just re-wrap some copper wire to get it done cheap. Has anyone done this before? Are there things i need to get right; type of copper, diameter, proper way to connect it...


    Would also appreciate reccomendations for safely cleaning stator componenetz

    What year/model is your engine? You'll almost certainly be better off just sourcing new coils. This 3-speed kit for example. If your motor is covered, it's a minty-new/plug-and-play (literally), solution...way easier than rewinding your old coils.

    I typically use electrical contact cleaner from any of the auto supply places. Brakleen also works. For what it's worth, I doubt anything you spray on the stator is going to damage the insulation on the coil. Would be more concerned with your chemical of choice damaging the seals, or maybe the cable harness (if aftermarket).

    I don't know what type of insulation Honda used on the coils back in the 70's, but it is tough stuff. Other than a knife, I don't have any chemicals in my toolbox that will remove it.

    Thanks guys. Its a 70e if that means anything. Found that in the same spot under the flywheel. I have points and condensers already. Does anyone know were I can get just the coils? I realize buying the set u posted is the easy way, im just trying to be cheap..

    All the cheap versions are the kits, not seperate. They are available OEM, they would cost a lot more like 77 a piece. CHP on ebay has the kit for 39 shipped.
