115hp 2 Stroke Johnson 2004 Rectifier

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a 115hp 2 stroke Johnson 2004. For some strange reason my rectifier blows every approx 100 hours. I’m up to my third rectifier at $450 a pop!!! Everyone tell me to check my battery connections, and from what I can see my dual battery system is all good / secured… I can not fault any other electronics…

Has anyone experienced or have a similar issue? Can anyone offer any advice?? Or I’m I just unlucky… Thanx.

Rgs,

Choteo.

Do you charge your battery ever?

If so do you remove your terminals or do you leave them connected

the only thing i can think of if you leave the terminals

you may be getting charge into the motor side and it may be damaging it.

thats the only thing i can come up with

cheers

Unlucky?

On the rectifier side of things.... I doubt it.

Who is selling you and installing these rectifiers at $450 a pop?

Does he need a business partner :P

Hi, do you have wing nuts on the battery terminals?

Cheers,

Hi All. Thanx for the replies.

I've never had to charge batteries as they maintain charge via use. I have spring washes with nylon nuts on battery terminals…. $450 is the RRP for the rectifier unit… :mad3:

Hi, we have replaced one of those in the last 5 years so not a common problem and I guess I would find someone else if they keep putting on them becuase they are not finding the root cause of the failures.

Cheers,

Huey.
