Skat D-75 Stator cracked
Anyone ever heard of this? I found a complete pump for cheap but apparently when Skat bores the stock stators out to press in the 12 vein they bored them too big and over time they split.

I would believe if they bored them too small and the press fit had too much interference then over time they may split.

That's what I meant, bore was a bit too small and stator that was pressed in was a bit too big...
Think I could get it welded back together?

I would get an old beat up Pump stator and have it bored and press the Skat stator in it. This would be the proper solution for this.

Most likely salt water got between aluminum housing and SST stator started to corroder and pushed housing open (much like what happens to Yamaha wear rings)

Can it be repaired by welding? Is the oem stator aluminum?

Yes, it should be aluminum. The probelm is, if you have it welded, aluminum disapates (sp) heat very well. The stator will warp and you will probably end up with a paper weight. I found this out when I had a case welded on my MX bike after I cased it on a big rock. When the welder welded it it warped the cases and internals. I had to take the complete engine apart, have the cases machined back flat, and replace the clutch. We used wet rags to try to keep the heat from traveling too far but it didnt help. You should be able to find a stator and have it machined for a pretty reasonable price.

I am assuming I would need a 155mm stator? The Skat pump is 148mm... Anyone got one?

I have a stack of pre 05 155mm GPR stator sections if you need one. $30.00 plus shipping.
