    Ok. The first thing that got my attention whn I bought my boat 2 years ago was that the Tach did not work. I have also noticed that I get little to no charge to my battery. I replaced the tach, but that didn't do any good. Now that I have done some research, I realize that the tach was probably fine and that it could be a rectifier/regulator problem or a stator issue. here is what I have done/found so far. I replaced teh rectifier/regulator. It is the 6 wire style. This did no good. I then noticed that the two yellow wires that come from teh Stator to the Rectifier were fried at the connections on either end. I replaced them, and still no dice. Is the last step to replace the stator? Is there a way to test it? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If your stator was fried I don't believe the motor would work at all...

    Check your wiring against the merc color codes
    to verify the intended circuit function, yellow is charging circuit
    grey is tach function...

    I had to replace the stator on mine due to no power because one cylinder wasnt firing so YES it will still run.

    Thanks Brett,

    My wiring all looks good. That is to say, I have connected the new rectifier in the exact manner the original one was. Any ideas why the yellow wires would have been burned up at either end?

    Oh, I had a fried stator in my two stroke and it would not run at all.
