When shipping GE pancakes the ROTOR should be removed from the motor OR made so it cannot move back and forth using a clamp on the motor shaft or feeding into the motor through the vent holes some "backer rod" which is a soft foam rubber about ⅜" diameter and used to back caulking on a bathtub.   Nothing needs to be done to the stator.    I immobilize the rotor to keep it from moving back and forth which can break the front or rear motor castings.
