I did cut the notch for the re-routing of the stator wires. I put some right stuff on all 4 sides of the grommet before sliding it on. If you use enough right stuff, it shouldn't matter about it being a little warped. Are you sure the leak isnt coming from one of the 3 screws? I had to replace the o-rings before they would stop leaking.
