Wonder if there is mild pressure behind that stator wire plug ? Or oil simply sloshing against the plug inside and a combo of a loose plug?

So is that plug all fused together with wires inside ( epoxy'd up ) so that replacement means a stator replacement?

The "O" ring is leaking thus it pushes the stator plug out due to oil coming out around the seal("O" ring).

I tried to be reasonable once,I didn't like it!
