stator gasket probs

having a nightmare getting the gasket on the stator as its metal i cannot get it to go straight ( flat ) on to the the stator cover without
rises in it here and there, i tried holding it in place with the silicone
but no luck, so have cleaned it all back, and now waiting for any good advice

Thanks all

Do not use silicone - it should go on dry - you can use thin smear of engine oil to help it 'stick' initially

Just make sure both surfaces are clean with no residual if you originally used silicone on them.

I can tell you from experience that it will leak if you use silicon sealant on it. It is pretty frustrating until you figure it out, or better yet, take advice from DEcosse. That's actually a pretty good idea when it comes to anything about the charging system.

same as, friend says best way to connect cover+gasket to the block is to use a couple of
long screwdrivers to help against the pull of the rotor!

I wouldn't - just asking for scratches on cover/case face or gasket
Use something plastic if you have to wedge something in there.

I ran into the same thing when I replaced the stator and r/r... I remedied it by holding the bottom of the cover w the left hand, top w the right. And alot of swearing.

It took some shimmying, but then just went into place.

Good luck!
