You're certainly welcome, Mike!
Taping off the inside is definitely easier than getting the stator out. I have been diligently avoiding a situation requiring a Stamped Westy stator removal. On the one Westy I've messed with, I used compressed air to get the big dirt out, and a bent paint brush to get more out. Then I doused the coils in the back with enough insulation varnish to soak into the coils. Wiped the excess insulation varnish off the inside of the stator and motor case.
If the fan gods are smiling, there will be enough wire to solder to coming out of the motor case. I solder and heat shrink, then carefully stuff the repaired part inside the motor case. Tedious at best.
