It's good to know these things. I just wanted to hold off putting that flywheel back together after I flip my PW50 stator part into the moped.
I just had fears of the other parts being crappy but they don't look as bad as the part I'm going to take out! This has clumps of rust and some of it penetrated the plastic or polystyrene covering that the coil itself had.
I guess it's not as bad as I thought trying to get that thing apart without a proper flywheel holding tool to get the damn retaining nut off.
I used a really big ass pair of needle-nose vise grips that fit pretty nicely in there and it braced against the foot peg. not recommended unless you're pretty savvy with vice grips. I came away with very little signs as to what I used.
I'm going to flip that part, resolder and put that thing back together. I want to hear this baby running again!
Thanks again for your help, Jack! Much appreciated
