Hey there, we have 2 of these 27kw quiet source gens. One has a bad gen end and one has a bad engine. The plan is to remove the gen ends and put the good gen end on the good engine. We pretty much have everything tore apart, but we cannot remove the stator (the black sleeve). I am sure it is suppose to slide off, but it seems stuck or pressed on. Any suggestions on how to remove it or break it free would be great. Any other suggestions on removing the windings would also be great. Thanks

If the windings mechanically failed, they could be holding it on.

I'd just remove the bolts from the flex plate and pull the rotor and stator as a whole and then install the new one. There will be a spot on the bellhousing for accessing the flex plate bolts one at a time (you'll have to bar the engine over by hand to line up each bolt). Once they're loose, pull the whole assembly.

Yes, on larger units the gen end comes off together, unbolt the flex plate first and then the bellhousing. If your proposed gen end is good no need to separate stator from rotor.

Oh ok, that is why I was trying to tear everything apart to get to those bolts. If I could leave it all together that would be much easier.
Do you know how many bolts are in the flex plate?
Thanks

4 or 6 bolts. There is a hole near the starter to get at them one at a time while rotating the engine.
