Don't repack. REPLACE the bearings. After all cleaning/porting/polishing steps. That'* the last thing you do before reassembly to keep things clean. No special tools other than a press will be needed. Follow the procedure on that page.

Excellent! Now I just need to find a rotor assembly.

I don't have a press, is that something I could just pick up from a hardware store, or do I need a big one?

EDIT: Like this one? http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=1667

That'll do. But a machine shop can press them for you for less money.

I requested a quote from these guys: http://www.thehighspeedlab.com/

Has anyone done business with them? How are their prices?

Look carefully at their prices. They charge for both removal of old coating and re-coating.

Nobody here has done business with them, so I couldn't really say. I can tell you they're charging a pretty penny for nosedrive rebuilds. Quite a lot of cash there for a fairly simple procedure.

Does anyone have experience with the guy on ebay selling rebuilds?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/EATON...56193676QQrdZ1

His seller name is BMNCB. I sent him a quick email asking if he could selling me an m62 minus nose drive. What do you guys think?

BTW - I installed a smaller pulley, dropped from a 3.8" to a 3.6", I got back an extra 1.5psi of boost, maxing me out at 6psi now. That is supposed to be a 9.5psi pulley on a good working blower!! I really need to get these rotors replaced.

That guy is illiterate as hell. I don't buy from eBay sellers that can't spell or use punctuation.

The amount of boost isn't solely dependent on pulley size. It'* also dependent on your crank pulley diameter. Yours is likely very different than ours, so you won't see the same boost with the same pulley size.

Keep in mind we achieve 8-9 psi with a 2.8" pulley on a 94/95, or 8-9psi with a 2.5" pulley on a 92/93.

Yep, I understand that. I was just saying that I dropped pulley sizes and I still don't have crap for boost.

Thanks for the heads-up on the ebay guy. I'll see what he has to say, I think I'll give him a call and talk to his personally. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm having superchargertech.com do my repairs. They are replacing all the bearings and the rotors. They are sending out some epoxy coated rotors to get them teflon coated for additional boost. So far, these guys seem really professional.

They quoted me $450 for the refurb of my charger, plus an additional $70 to have the rotors coated in teflon.

Does this all seem on the up and up? Does anyone have any experience with these guys?

On their website, they list the Supercharged Boneville through 2004? 2003 was the last year of that application. Their site looks fairly professinal, although I see some 'borrowed' images from another website or two. That'* usually not done out of professional courtesy alone.

If their prices are really 700 plus core, there are lots of cheaper sources out there that produce quality rebuilds. The most notable is www.canadiansupercharger.com who also happens to have a FL outlet. You might want to compare your pricing with them.
