Stamped steel Westys are notoriously hard to work on.  Particularly if you need to remove the stator from the motor housing.  I've looked around for the best way to accomplish this without damaging either the housing or the stator.  I've read of people drilling holes in the back of the housing and using a punch to pound the stator out.  I tried that once and ruined the stator.  I also read where someone cut slits in the housing to release the pressure and then welded them back before reassembly - too much work and no welder. 

I've been working on a few stamped steel Westys recently.  I've come up with a way that is simple and has worked perfectly for me several times.  I thought I'd share.  Don't hold me responsible if this doesn't work for you (my disclaimer).
Here's what you need:
