Re: stator replacement
Do you have any play in your shifter lever? If it seems about like what you had before, you might be ok..
Still.. if you have some down time.. might not be a bad idea to get it ALL back together. Hopefully it isn't one of those balancer washers that caused Beavis and Cory so much trouble.. but I don't thing it would have showed up where you found it.
