  • Which Stator?

    Hi all,
    Having trouble with my JZ revving out cleanly. I have new OEM carb, i've fiddled with jetting and needle positions, checked timing and valves, as good as I can, and have new OEM points and a new TB condensor.

    When I rebuilt the engine, I just picked a decent looking stator out of the shelf of parts, and didn't really pay any attention to it. I thought they are all the same.

    I have a raised dome stator flywheel on the bike, but not sure which stator plate I have - will have a look this afternoon hopefully.

    Is the stator plate for J1 and JZ the same? or are they different at all? I saw somewhere that one may have the points raised off the plate for some model or other, but don't know which model has which plate - or, more the issue which plate is for which flywheel?

    Cheers. - I'm wondering if that is the reason why my bike performs well up to half throttle-ish but not full throttle where it breaks down and stumbles.

    UPDATE:
    I've had a look at my stator that is installed. Seems to be of the 'low down points' variety. I'm guessing that's a J1 or so stator plate ?? As I have a few of those that were fitted to J1 engines I have spare.

    So, Am I correct in saying that the JZ stator plate is to have the points raised off the plate ? And is that due to the seemingly shorter taper on the crankshaft ? I'm guessing, but would having the points set low, be causing my power / non revving cleanly issue?

    See photos below of the current stator plate fitted (presumeably a J1 plate) with the flywheel being used, and, the other stator on the floor is what I now presume to be a JZ stator??

    Cheers.

    I guess I'll try and switch over the working parts onto the other plate on the weekend, but am I on the right track here?

        im really not sure mate as i only ever owned A's and j1's but i'd say thats a jz rotor, all my 6 volt engines have a flat face rotor
        You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.
