When he described the procedure, he said they remove the bearings, then machine the holes larger and press in new bearings that are a bit larger. Is this the usual procedure?

He sounds very intelligent on the phone and I'm confident they know what they are doing. He mentioned that they rebuild upto 20 chargers a day, and said he could guarantee same day or next day turn around on the refurb. I plan on sending it out on May 1st, so I'll let you know how it goes or if there are any snags.

Only one of the holes in the intermediate plate needs to be machined. Not both.

Eaton uses two different sizes of bearings to hold the rotors in the plate. The seals are also a different size. One of the bearing/seal sizes is very hard to get, so they should bore out one side.

I personally disagree with this procedure, as it increases the risk of rotor clash.

I just got off the phone with Brian McPhee from SuperchargerTech. He said they have a brand new set of rotors from a Mercedes m62 that they'll be using. He is fully confident that they can get my m62 rebuilt and better than new. There work is guaranteed with a 2 year warranty, but Brian said that they generally cover repairs for the lifetime of the unit.

Default w00t! NO COATING!!

I made a short video to show what the rotors look like. I pulled the SC off last night and I'm shipping it to superchargertech.com today. Enjoy the video:

Brian McPHEE? He'* the owner of www.canadiansupercharger.com

You may have just found his FL outlet. I don't understand the pricing, but I'm betting that price INCLUDES the core.

I guess that would make sense. It sounds like canadiansupercharger.com uses superchargertech.com to do all repairs. Wow, I suddenly feel a LOT better about this, canadiansuperchargers has an awesome rep.

This would also explain why the caller ID shows up as a Manitoba call when he calls me. I didn't think Manitoba was anywhere near Florida!!

You found their FL repair facility. They also have one in Canada. In addition, they sell superchargers on eBay.

That'* how I found them, they had a SC for sale on eBay and I inquired about the services they provide.

Did you have a chance to view the video? I'm just wondering what you think of the rotors?
