100 % correct as I know it.If I'm not mistaken, you'll still have to pull the motor in order to do the mod kit for future stator work. After the first pull and install, you only have to remove the outer cover next time.
I believe there is a technique where you don't have to completely pull motor but almost. Something to do with dropping part of the frame. Read it on here somewhere. You might do a thread search. I have also found a Google search can bring up threads you are looking for a bit easier than trying the forum's technique. Somewhat limited.
....and better access/easy to clean........u know u will ! :smiley_thif you do drop the engine go ahead and pull it all the way, it will make it easier to get a good seal on the cover and only take a few more minutes. write up in my sig line for stator removal.
