To get back to my original question about removing the stator, it seems to be an extremely close fit inside the case. Also, the cap at the terminal board\centrifugal switch end seems to be almost one with the case, but I guess that can't be - the caps are aluminum and the case (I'm guessing but it seems logical) is steel.

Anyone had occasion to do a stator removal? Are they just a close fit or might the case be heat shrunk onto the stator assembly?

As to the suggestion that I buy another motor, I'd guess that poster isn't on a pension.

But in any case, all I'm missing is about 20mm of wiring. Throwing away repairable mechanisms is a colossal waste, IMHO, but it's typical of the modern attitude.

I agree with you.

Repairing things myself saves money, gives me satisfaction, and I've learnt a lot from pulling things apart even if they turn to not be economically repairable.

I'm guessing the case isn't shrunk on, but is a close fit and stuck with corrosion.

I've found cleaning everything really well is the first step in seeing how anything goes together/comes apart.

Heat is often useful for separating corroded bits.
