    Hey guys

    So just looking for some info on what is the best method to use to clean out the old grease and such from the stator before i asseble it. Also the best way to remove the corrosion from the wear ring and around the stator

    thanks

    Solvent cleans grease, then use a regular cleaner to remove the solvent remains.

    Wear ring corrosion you need to be careful with. The mating surfaces where each section meets the other sections needs to be clean and smooth. Remove the big stuff using the side of a screwdriver blade or possibly some sand paper.

    There are aluminum cleaning products, often found at boating supply stores, especially those that cater to sailboats.

    So use like a carb cleaner or something like that to get the grase out? Then clean it after with soap and water?
