OK, so here's a little trick I picked up from automotive repair on Youtube. If you have to remove an alignment bolt from your struts, make a mark on the bolt and the strut using a punch and a hammer. The small divot you make becomes an alignment mark so you can put it back exactly how it was. That's what I did on the stator. I don't know if you can see it in the picture, but it is aligned exactly as it was before I started. My timing was good before, so it should still be good.
Clean cover on engine.
