new belt, no stator

Well I just finished putting my new belt on, tho it was tricky getting the stator off without removing the clutch fan
From what ive read on here several people are not running them anyway and have no heating problems? Im used to gas motors but why would they design basically an air blocker, as it looked to me the only air moving out was around the edges of the stator. I would assume now there is more air on the motor thus helping the cooling process, am I wrong on this? Thanks for the info in advance...

Some say the "taking of lives" is never justified. It is those who employ others to protect them so that they do not have to face that choice.

Why would you have to remove anything to change the belt?

Never done anything special other than locking the tensioner out when I do them at work.

LOL, I guess im the only guy here that has to stand on my tire to do any work on the truck and big arms so that its almost impossible to do any front motor work with the stator on, not including if i break down on the road, I can actually get to the motor a little easier,

I think the question is why would anyone keep that on their truck? its nothing but a hindrance.
