I've had my stator cover on & off about 3 or 4 times now. I agree with DeCosse, a screwdriver might be a little to risky; I used some the second time, & lo and behold some lovely dents showed up on the gasket... Ordered a new gasket (it came wobbly, not flat), and wrestled to get it back on. Instead of screwdrivers, I now just use my fingers (which of course get smashed like 80 times in the process!) ...I don't think there's an easy way to perform the task; that magnet & orientation & keeping gasket in place... I somewhat agree with Will, the first time I used silicone & it leaked oil. Thinking I went too light on the silicone, I opened 'er back up and put a little more on there. Hasn't leaked since, so take that for what it's worth.

Good luck!

All DONE, APART FROM A BIT OF OIL, & COOLANT, TOOK ME ABOUT 30 MINs. found a dowel on stator casing held gasket on this with one hand
and with the other put cover sraight on. no leaks and no sealant used, let you know how it goes. THANKS for all the advise as i
