Anyone have an idea how I get the guts out of the case? And I can't get the base disconnected, it looks like there is a nut that is on a thread going from the round part where it attaches to the base. 
Any ideas would help.

Thanks
Mark

Those stators are a bear to remove. Maybe search "Westinghouse stator removal" for good tips?
As far as the knuckle joint, there is a trick to it. And even then it can get stuck. O_o

You'll need to remove the Oscillator arm inside the gear cover of you haven't done so yet.

Maybe these photos can help see the concept for removal. The 









And on the right side parts tray is a knuckle and pass through lock bolt.

On my 16" the neck cylinder I turned the wing nut backwards and gave it a light tap and it came right out.This is what it looks like.

The small screw in the middle of the large bolt is what is holding the top of the fan in the base.  Remove the small center screw and pull hard.  It will come out of the base.

Well my screw has no way to unscrew, or am I looking at this the wrong way. Is there a bolt under the stator going into the main base?

I guess a picture is better way to show you what I mean. Mine seems to have a screw running vertical that I can't unscrew. WTH? :censored:censored

Tried that, and it looks like someone else pounded like crazy before it got to me. I ordered a gear puller and a steel plate to pull it out. Hopefully it will work.

Just so you don’t get discouraged, stamped steel Westinghouse stators are pressed into the head case which makes them extraordinarily difficult to remove AND it’s just as difficult getting the stators back into the case. Pretty much any other make and year is easier to work with. It will be the hardest stator removal you ever do IF you succeed. The best way I’ve found is what William Wu suggests above. Use a four foot section of PVC pipe inserted into the case (open end facing down), put one hand under the case and use you other hand to hold the case firmly against the pipe. Gently tap the pipe on a hard surface and it should start to move. It sometimes helps to put the case in the freezer for an hour to shrink the metal and a drop or two of oil around the edges between the stator and the case is a good idea. Be sure to remove the grommet that the headwires pass through before you begin. Good luck with this!

I've heard you're not supposed to use the pipe trick method on stamped steel fans because the hard banging will bend the back of the case a little bit, making the bearings very un-aligned, and the rotor will be seized up when you put the motor together again.
Before I reinstalled the stator in my Westinghouse stamped steel, I sanded the outside of the laminations a little bit. When I put the stator in, I just slowly went around the stator (top, bottom, left, right) tapping it in. I'd say it probably didn't take more than 20 minutes to get the stator back in.

Bake at 180f for thirty minutes then try again.  I will bet a 20 dollar bill.

Did you get the neck out?
These are a real PITA to work on!

Careful with the Stator removal!
