So I was replacing the stator cover with an aftermarket one and I managed to strip 3 out of 4 stator bolts trying to take the stator out. These sorry bolts use torx bits and have loctite on the threads.

Anyone else run into this problem?

They can be really tough to get out. Before stripping them, you should have used an impact driver...

I was thinking the same thing when I stripped the first bolt. Too bad I live in an apartment and don't have the luxury or room to store and operate an air compressor. :(
