    The top & bottom housing pieces are stuck nice & tight to the stator... should I spray WD40 to loosen them up? Am I going to need to tap them with a mallet or should they slide off easily?

    Hmmm... can't turn the shaft by hand... should I be able to do that or does the collar of the shaft seal hold it tightly?
