I need some help here folks! On my M18, it was not charging even though the ohm meter said the stator was good. I pulled the engine back out of Alice and took the flywheel off. Found all the magnets stuck to the stator. Anybody have a clue on how to reattach them?

I just watch a you tube video and he used JB Weld. Seems pretty easy, just got to clean it all! I know what I'm doing today!

My son suggested some E-6000. Said they use that to glue sub-woofers back together!

I went to Ace and they did not have the E-6000 in stock, order only. So I grabbed some JB Kwik weld. It's curing now.

I identified the magnets into the correct polarity, as these need to be one then the other around the flywheel.

Here's the stator. A little dusty, but looks fine. Tests the same as the other 2 I have, so will stay with it.

In the video I found, he used clothes pin ends for spacers. I found my stash of them and chopped the ends off. They worked perfect!

I left the clamps on for 2 hours, cure time is 4 hours. i went ahead and put the engine back together and we set it in. I have it all hooked up and ready to fire in the morning. That should be plenty of time! Back to the other thread.

That was a fast fix!
That makes me very happy! I'm sure the stator is okay, I did not see any marks on it any where. We'll see in the morning.

Wally World has it in the sewing dept.

Would that be the video of the guy with the scary teeth??

Keep us posted

I have the same problem loose magnets
I think these will hold just fine. Just be sure to clean well before. And make sure you have the magnets in the right order. It really is an easy fix!

I put ONE little magnet back in my Vanguard recently. Lots of them, only one loose. They set down in a little well to keep in place. A little hard to clean that out then, but we got it. Running and charging now. I put flywheel on next day. JB Weld and a pinch clamp.

Looks good Kenny! Have used JB Weld also to reattach magnets on an HM80 flywheel. You just have to make sure you get them in tight against the flywheel. Sometimes the clearance in there is pretty close and if they stick out too far it won't be pretty.
