Yes, but...

The usual failure mode of the two remaining stator legs is overheating from the additional current draw. I installed an oil injector which floods the stator with engine oil to constantly cool it so extra current, up to the 15 A fuse limit, won't overhead my stator. Between the fuses and the oil cooling, I don't expect to ever lose my stator again. After the second stator change, I got smart.
