Clarification please!!! Generator/Stator/Coil/Magneto???
Okay, so I have a few questions, and maybe just one if it's the same thing.
Can someone please explain to me the differences for these charging system terms:
I think these may all be the same thing. But if my service manual says that the generator coil is bad, is that the same thing as the generator? Then think I found it referenced as a stator. So if I need a generator, does that mean I need a stator? You can see where I'm having some issues here.
Also, the regulator/rectifier a.k.a. the R/R, this is not an alternator, correct?
I'd appreciate some clarification on the topic, and I can't be the only one. Thanks for you input.
