    Hooking your bilge straight to the stator?

    Hey all,

    This may be a stupid question but I just got through mounting my bilge pump in my x2. Itís mounted with epoxy all the way towards the back of the hull. Because the stator positive and negative are so close to it it seems like it would look cleaner and be easier to mount it directly to the exterior bolts on the stator where the battery hooks up to. Is this the same as mounting it to the batter or will this not work? Thanks for the help

    Re: Hooking your bilge straight to the stator?

    No because the stator produces AC voltage and the bilge pump is DC.
    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key
    hated on by most these &^$$@s with no cheese, no deals and no G's, no wheels and no keys, no boats, no snowmobiles, and no skis, mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries

    WWSRD , What would Speed Racer do ?

    Will a Rectifier between the Stator and the Bilge make it work?

    I know, more components, more things that can go wrong.

    Simplest solution is to tie into Battery and include an inline Fuse.

    Are you sure you don't mean STARTER and not STATOR? The stator is on the front of the engine...inside the front cover...

    Testing a fire extinguisher probably.
    Changes aren't permanent, but change is.

    Jonny thanks for the correction. I meant starter, not stator.
