Must mean "gasket needed to change the stator"- there is only one. Dont need clutch cover gasket. Clutch slave seal is a good idea. Be sure to clean all the oil off the cases and clean them with solvent, then use gasket compound ( I use permatex black gasket sealer, extremely sticky!) so the cases dont leak- its really embarrasing to put it back together then get ridiculed because it leaks oil like a Harley.

Be EXCEEDINGLY careful not to drop, hit, bump or otherwise crunch the stator windings against the mount in the case, its easy to do while trying to stuff that black plug through the case, and can destroy the stator if it hits hard enough to damage a winding. Treat the windings like glass and youll do OK.

And make sure that the circlip holding the rubber grommet that the stator wires pass through is seated properly in the groove or you will get a bad oil leak. All the best with the job.

Just a note about that rear cover gasket. The Honda one is a lot more expensive than aftermarket ones (you usually have to buy a set with aftermarket as well), but I've read lots of stories about poorly fitting rear cover gaskets and always aftermarket ones. The Honda one is alwaysa much betterfit.

Koots,I'm not testing you abilities to spot a oil leak.

But seeing that you are Only changing the rear cover gasket,Are you sure it isn't the slave cyl leaking done the engine cover impersonating a rear cover leak?? I have seen slave cyl's leak in the past,,,Just trying to save you some labor???

Mr 1200 no its not the slave cyl I was in the engine last year to do som trans work and had a problum with the clutch I put the push plate on backwards so I had to take the back cover off a few times till I got the clutch right honest mistake so I think tore the gasket where the bottom bolt go through the gasket its leaking right there were the cover meets the block not running down from the slave :dude:

Can you loosen the cover, work in a little Permatex, bolt it up and see if it leaks. Nothing much to lose and it should stop any leaks.

Tip the engin eforward so the oil doesnt seep out the bottom, clean both faces with solvent then use Permatex gasket sealer (monkey "stuff" as I call it) and glue it on. IT wont seal if the oil is lying in the bottom.
