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.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
