Once again, I had to return to the old donor engine block for some spare parts. The rotor on the engine to be rebuilt was a rusted mess. The rotor on the donor engine looks brand new. I will test it with an voltmeter to be safe, but being that it is so clean, i am not too worried.

To remove a Rotor, you need to have the rotor puller bolt.

To remove the rotor, all you will need is a 6mm hex bit and a 13mm socket.
