There is a way to accomplish this without the brake tool. It takes longer, but may be worth your while. The screws that hold the stator in place are about a half-inch long. The thread is 8-32. Remove three of them in an alternating pattern (remove one, leave the next, remove the next, etc) and replace them with longer screws(about 1" long). Slowly back out the short ones. Now, carefully back out the longer screws, trying to keep the process as equal as possible, until the spring pressure is neutralized. Reinstallation is reverse. NOTE: Although this may sound simple, it is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, and is only intended to serve as a plausible method. The spring pressure is, as stated before, 200PSI.
