Theres a aluminum spacer between the bearings, just slid it over a tad and the screwdriver will fit in there on the side of the bearing lip/ you need to reuse that alum spacer so.. remember to put it back in/
Then when putting it back together, leave the o-rings out, freeze the bearings and heat the stator in the oven (with no o-rings in it) and youll have 10 seconds to drop the bearing in, they will fall in being so cold.
then just tap into place, let it cool off, install the o-ring and your done.

also besides the impeller tool i also need this correct
so that + the impeller and i should be back in the water?
I also broke a bolt into the Jetpump housing any ideas on how to get that out?
or should i purchase a new housing?

Don't overcook the stator. 200F is enough heat. Don't burn yourself - use heavy work gloves.
Put one bearing in, get it seated, let it expand and get locked in. Then turn the stator over, insert the spacer, and the other bearing.
It is important to make sure the bearings are fully seated against the bottom of the bearing hole on each side.
The spacer should be in contact with the back side of both bearings, but should NOT be under pressure against the bearings.

Oh and one last question The stator blades are the flat blades inside the jetpump right? can those be replaced or is that part of the impeller?

The blades are in the pump yes, the impellor is just that.. your prop so to speak. totally different than the stator and its blades. yes they can be fixed if broke.
Thanks keith for explaining in detail about the heat on the pump n stuff. i was going to say not over 200 or 250.. not 450! ouch! then seating the 1 first is a good idea. then the other one after the spacer is put back in.

I guess the last question before i decide to try or pay for someone else to do this... lol
where can i buy new stator blades? and if i find them does it all come assembled? with new bearings and seals? pop in new impeller and reinstall?
since i broke that bolt off into the jetpump housing im starting to wonder if i can even get all thos back together anyway.
When i get home i will post pics of the stator blades
