    1999 Polaris 1050 sltx

    Ran some test figure the stator is shot....does the engine have to be pulled out to install a new stator?

    You need enough room to not only get the flywheel cover off, but to install and really tighten a flywheel puller.

    Some guys have had success doing it in the hull. Sometimes they move the fuel tank forward, or even remove it through the front opening. Not all tanks will fit through the opening, however.

    Others have commented that they would have been better off to remove the engine from the hull, then work on the flywheel on the bench.

    Sometimes the flywheel can be really hard to get loose. Search for flywheel puller to see what others have done.
