Default Trying to teardown strange motor,

I have 2 of these motors, One was sitting on my bench and picked up a piece of wire or something, inside blocking the motor from turning.

Both are brand new, although I have had them for a few years. I thought they were interesting since the wires come out the back and are hidden.

They were rated 1000-2000 watts, which may be very optimistic. They weigh 241.5 grams, and are 66mm from firewall to back of prop.

The 1 with the cross mount removed is the 1 that is stuck.Does anyone have an idea how to get this thing apart? Both ends of the outer magnet housing rotate with the prop. The only stationary part is where the 3 wires come out and of course the 3 wires.
I can't tell if the ends are pressed in or threaded. There are 2 set screws in the large fan area going in against the prop shaft. Removing them did not loosen up any thing.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
