|I wish that the paint was the problem. Unfortunately, I did tape it up to prevent paint from getting around the lip of the front cover and the center body piece. The stator slides in nicely and goes all the way back. I can slide the cover over the studs and the shaft and everything rotates well, but if I try to get the cover back into the center housing (or whatever it is called), the rotor no longer turns. Something is off center, but I have no idea how it got that way or how to fix it.
