found the bracket. now quetion for ya'll..

as you can see, the bracket holds the stator wires on the underside of teh stator.... cuz you can't see the wires coming form the "top" of the stator in the old stator pic... so it's holding the wires on the bottom.. the new RM stator wires are pretty much tied into position and i put that side of the stator "down" if you will... so should i try to throw that bracket in there? looks like it screws into it's own spot on the underside of teh stator.. right? cuz i cant see it on the original stator pic before i started takign crap off....

I would try to get all the original brackets in place if at all possible. You're going to use heavy wires from stator output to battery, right? And run a fuse inline between positive regulator output and battery? And use soldered on ring connectors to battery posts?

I used two big zipties to hold the regulator in place. Have some spares on hand cuz ya gotta cut them to move regulator for battery access.

I've done the charging dance with Godzilla from 1985 till I heard of the regulator upgrades. You sound like you're gonna be good with what you've done so far. As long as you're doing upgrades to the electrical system, consider headlight relays.. With your charging system working at 100% getting your headlight power directly from battery will really make things brighter.

hey thanks man. ok i'll get that bracket back in there and mount it back on the alternator cover.

the wires from stator to the R/R.... if i'm not mistaken, thats the correct order or components right?

yeah the wires from stator to R/R came with stator...RM stator i'm sure they are good enough good gauge i can only hope... then i got 14g like you said to run from R/R to battery... got the directions u sent me, have a 30amp fuse for inline like u said.. i'll get to all that stuff after i mount this stator back in there and get the mid gear cover back on and etc.... after i get the gasket for it from boats.net. i'll update once i get that far.. also i'll definitely do what u said about getting brighter headlight.. def need that too. but we'll get there. one step at a time for me.

Go to Easternbaever.com for relays. you can buy a really nice prewired plug and play harness, or buy the components and solder up your own harness.
Get the "infairing" kit. This will let you stash the relays under the fake tank. My relays live in the headlight bucket - it's a tight fit. Someday I'll lengthen the wires to the plug to allow me to move them out of there.

just an FYI..

that bracket that holds the wires on the old stator aint gonna work. no spot to put a screw to put it in there. plus the RM stator wires are tied to the stator itself and already lines up well with the protector bracket thing. so just for anyone puttin gin an RM stator, you won't b be using that bracket again with new stator.
