I am replacing the rear outer drum because the seal failed and then the bearings failed. Two questions:
1) I have the rear outer drum with the inner stainless drum sitting up on blocks with the drive shaft pointing upwards. How do I get the inner stainless drum loose from the bearings? I've tapped the splined shaft but it does not budge and I didn't want to break anything?
2) The large circular plate on the back of the rear outer drum is where the stator attaches. Can this plate be removed or does one come with the new rear outer drum?
ANSWER Hello Dennis,
The metal plate does not come with the new outer drum assembly. You will not use the heat shield.
