Installing New Stator
I am in the process of installing a new stator and the directions obtained off of our forum have been great. I have two questions at this point (ready to put back together):
1. I ordered a new oil seal for the gear shifter lever as advised. I had to dig and wire brush the old one out of the crevice of the case and it the process I found 2 spring type washers. The question is, how do I get the rigid rubber oil seal in the crevice? If I could bend or fold it, I would be able to get it into the crevice, but it is rigid and does not bend easily.
2. I have seen 2 recommendations for installing the inside stator cover gasket, the black sticky material and the Red RTV. Is there a consensus? I belive that Lance was fairly strong about using the black.
As always, the groups input on these two issues are greatly appreciated.
