I've asked him about spray painting them or applying some type of spray on bed liner material. He has told me that was not possible.., the wires have to remain pretty much exposed to work properly.

The retired gentleman also said that he will have to tape off each of the outside conductors on each of the coils around the stator so they don't get anything on them while applying the industrial varnish or it won't work properly. He said there is a coating on the stators from the factory, it's just not designed to repel fert induced corrosion. He also said there is a fine line between too much and just enough when coating them. Hell, I don't know. I'm just a "MacGyver" I'm not a mechanic or an electrician. I leave that work to the experts.

You would think B&S would have something... An HD Stator or something.

....I can't be the only one who has had this problem.
