so if its just the plug burning, did the spade connectors ever burn after that...also, i'm thinking it might not matter where the white wires go...they all are just running juice to the rectifier...Use the search or read the part in my 02 thread in my signature. The plug burns up. The stator could be fried too. I replaced the plug with female spade connectors. You can buy a new plug from regulatorrectifier.com if you want also.
Yea, the white wires are all the same, just out of phase. So it doesn't matter what order they go. The important thing is to replace the bad wiring with good solid connections, and make sure they are at least as large as the stock stuff. It's a good idea to test out the stator and rectifier too. One may have crapped out and could be the root cause of the overheating connector.
