It's been a very long time since I have pulled the stator cover off, but I seem to remember the potential for the starter gear to come loose & that requires that you roll it back into place to get it reseated. Other than that just be aware that some oil will leak out when you remove the cover & that you may need a new gasket if the old one doesn't come off cleanly. You will also need to resilicone the area around the grommet that hold the wires in place.

Did mine not too long ago, Lord Duck was right , Silcone the area where the grommet hold the wires, and the gear will most likely come loose or fall out , no bigee it only goes back one way, I went ahead and replaced the gasket , I did a oil change at the same time so did not have any real oil leakage. Watch your hands and fingers though the inside of that cover has extremely sharp edges, Cut my damn finger trying to get the stator bolts tight .Pretty easy install took maybe 20 minutes. good luck

Thanks for the info chaps as I will be taking my Alt. cover off soon too.

What did you guys use to cover the big hole in the side of the engine while the paint dries (if you painted/powdercoated the cover)? Or is it ok to leave it open for a bit?

I wouldnt worry about covering the hole, maybe a lint free towel , I did mine kinda quick so didnt have much down time , if its in the garage I wouldnt sweat it too much. good luck , str8

Don't worry about it as long as you aren't sweeping up dirt or making dust etc while the cover is removed...

Always cover a big hole with a bedsheet.
