[Healeys] stator tube

If you can find a short piece of tubing that is a tight fit over the inner
tube it can be soldered into place just above the bottom end of the slot
which will stop the cracking.
When the stator tube is reinstalled carefully the slot is still of
sufficient length to permit full adjustment of the wheel.
A little fiddly but it works.
