Unfortunately, I've already done that. The stator is about as close as I can get it to the pulley already. I do have room to move the rotor out a little, and still have lots of thread engagement. As it is, the nut is almost bottomed out on the internal threads, so I have a little room to play with. But if I wanted to get the rotor centered in the stator, I would have to make a longer sleeve nut. I don't think I'll really need to do that. Part of the limitation is the design of the MKIII stator mount. If I want to make a new mount from scratch, I can get the stator a little closer to the pulley. Doesn't seem worth it.grandpaul said:Once you are certain what width you need for the pulley, you can maybe shave the alternator stator stand-offs down a bit, THEN space out the rotor. The more bite you have with the rotor nut, the better.
