Stator housing removal

7 posts in this topic

I am trying to pull the housing off so I can get at and test the stator.

I have a harmonic puller and have been cranking it down while also tapping on it with a hammer.The thing won't budge. mad.gif And yes I did take the large nut off the shaft. Is their a trick to pulling these things off? Should I spray some penetrating oil on it? If I turn that thing anymore I know something is going to break frown.gif

I love working on that old piece of %&*$! shocked.gif

I use a snowmobile flywheel puller and an impact wrench. I do not think you are supposed to use an impact wrench, but my buddy who was a Polaris mechanic told me that is what he does. Works everytime.

I just rebuilt a 600 and had the same problem. I thought the puller was going to snap. I cranked it as tight as I dared and gave it a couple good cracks with a hammer on the puller bolt and nothing. Talked to a buddy of mine that has done quite a few, and he said "dont be afraid to give it a good hard hit". After 2 good hits, (harder than I thought I should have to) it popped right off.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
