    Before you start this job Disconnect the battery!
    As noted by TeeCat "I'd like to note that I was able to pull my stator without disconnecting it from the harness; I was able to just lay the stator safely out of the way."
    So don't do that part if you are not changing the stator,Ed

  2. This is a great video, thank you! I wish I'd had this when I had to change my crank seal a few years ago!

    I'd like to note that I was able to pull my stator without disconnecting it from the harness; I was able to just lay the stator safely out of the way.

    My oil dribble, after that, seemed to also be coming from between the case halves behind the assembly, but at least there's a new seal now.

    Again, thanks for these instructional videos!
