On most small generators, you have to open the generator case, remove the stator, and then remove the front housing from the engine. Why do you need to remove it?

Because it has a bad engine, have removed generator field, armature is attached to engine shaft, fan interferes with last bolt in case, thanks phil

Is the armature bolt removed? If so, a sharp blow from the side on the armature with a 2X4 block of wood should pop the tapered-fit connection free at the crankshaft. Don't hit it so hard you bend the shaft, just pop it sharply from the side. Then the fan and armature should be out of the way.

That worked thanks, I just did not want to break anything. Phil
