Which Stator to Use?
Like many before me, it seems that my stator may be shot, though it seems the RR is still alright. It's likely that I'm going to be trying to do the work myself, and wanted to see if there is any community consensus on which stator to get when doing this replacement. If you could provide pros/cons and/or and link to the manufacturer, that would be awesome too.
As an aside, I had one other quick question on replacing gaskets: when putting it all back together, are these steps right?
1. Clean both surfaces.
2. Put gasket sealant on both surfaces
3. Affix gasket to one surface
4. Put top surface against gasket, and bolt up.
It's been a long time since I've had to do anything that needed a gasket, and I'm not even sure I did it right then. I'd just like to make sure to get as much right as possible on the first try.
Thanks a lot!
