We have had small gen rewinds done, and in my opinion, they were better than new. Windings appeared to have better enamel wire, and definitely were consolidated far better than OEM. One was a 3KW Briggs, whose factory consolidation appeared sparse. That failure was diagnosed as insufficient consolidation allowing wires to vibrate, wear thru enamel and short out.

It depends on the shop and their work quality.

I am by no means a pro ,but that's what I was thinking that the stator looks light and cheaply made.as far as the shop goes I was impressed with it ,they certainly look like they know their stuff
