Hey the Germans do that all the time ...

But ... let's suppose there is oil on the inside surface of the flywheel ..........
(in the "counter-bore" where the stator sits ... )
the clearance between the poles of the stator and the inner bore of the flywheel is only a few thousands of an inch .... I think...........

If that's true and the oil film is more than a few thousands of an inch thick then the ends up being "scraped off" and being flung around?

I don't know ... I'm just talking while .......
