We will need some photos of your fan; numbers don't tell what you have.

They are very difficult to remove if very clean and in a best case scenario. You seem to have rust here and there and if there is rust between the stator and case it will be even more challenging. They were pressed in from new. 

Some have made specialized pullers, some freeze the motor then heat the housing with a torch to expand it. Others use a piece of pvc pipe sized to fit the case and let the stator slip inside. 


You can use the search feature to see all these different methods. None are simple and that’s why many restorers look the other way when they see a stamped steel Westy. 


Best of luck!
