    What's the easiest way to remove a chewed up phillips screw?

    Well the screw heads that are on the stator are stripped what's the easiest way to get them out?

    Use a Dremel to cut a line into the screw head. Then use a flat screwdriver to remove it. If that fails, you need to drill a hole into it and use an easy out screw extractor. If possible, try using a left hand twist drill bit. Not very common, but they do exist.

    if I can't get vise grips on them I use a thin blade in a dremel or grinder and make it a groove for a flat head screw driver last line use a screw extractor

    surprisingly enough if you have room for a hammer strike and wont mess up other stuff around the bolt, a couple on good stikes on the head (of the bolt) may just sharpen up the edges enough to get it out and loosen it up.
    plus it feels good when your frustrated!

    If you have room to use one, nothing works better than an impact driver like RX951 posted above.
