This is very cool. Looks like you have rebuilding these babies down to a science.

That puller is massive...can I borrow it? I like overkill tools.

I have it easy when it comes to stuff like this. I have this set at work:



And a giant 6' tall Hydraulic press to put the bearings and gears back together. Not to mention solvent tanks and ultrasonic cleaners to clean things up, and a full machine shop or 3 when I need it/them

Be careful with those rotors!

BTW, I'm not coating any more. I have a set of '95 rotors on the way for transplant. Already teflon coated.

My rotors appear to still be coated. Small chip on one of the edges but the rest is fine. I have to wait til my friend brings me a bigger puller for the gears.

Well folks, I can tell you this:

1. If you don't have every gear puller in the set above available to you, don't try this at home.

2. If you don't have a hydraulic press available to you, don't try it anywhere.

3. If you don't have the utmost patience and common mechanical sense and experience, don't even think about it.

Most may find the very low prices at www.canadiansupercharger.com very tempting if they knew what was involved.

Almost done, pics coming sometime tonight. I'm still at work (on my time) working on it.

NM. It'* not worth it. It only cost me $50 to try, but it'* too touch getting the backlash set between the rotors and the gears. Way too touch. Used every trick in the book, but without a complicated jig, it just isn't possible, even with the knowledge and tools I have available to me.

I have a slight rotor clash, but too much for my liking at 16,000 rpms. I'll be replacing the Zilla'* SC, but porting and polishing that replacement like this one.
