It's likely that stator was 'hot dropped' in to the aluminum housing.  The aluminum housing is heated so it expands, then the room temp stator is quickly placed in the housing while the housing is at the expanded state.

One the aluminum housing cools it shrinks down on the stator providing an interference fit and thus retention of the stator in the housing.

Not saying I know that's your situation but looks to be.

You could try to heat that housing up with a torch from the outside to get it to expand then the stator my free up and slide out.
