    Good start to the year

    Nothing like a good old fashioned Mercury voltage regulator fire. . At least it happened on the water and didn't burn my ****ing house down. Click image for larger version.

    guess they need to fuse the stator side as well.

    Sucks, I really like the motor and don't want to alter it in anyway but this particular issue with regulator motors is all to common. Plus it was a squeaky clean motor and cleaning it back up is going to be a pain in the ass.

    I replaced the yellow potted ones on my Pro Max a few years ago with the new fused style. Was hoping that was going to be the end of my regulator issues.
