Does anyone have the part numbers for the rotor seals? (Not the snout seal)

Rotor seals? There aren't any. Describe what you're asking about.

I am new at this. I was looking at a */C Thunderbird website and they show some rotor seals that they claim they need to be replaced.

No sure what you're talking about. And they use the same series of blower we do.

You need:

Snout seal
Snout bearings
Rotor needle bearings (if you choose to go this far)
Red gasket maker to seal the rotor casing back up (this is goop, not a seal)

I am quoting the information on the Texas Thunderbird'* website:

Quote:
Rotor seals
Does your supercharger keep blowing snout seals? Losin' oil out of the blower but just cain't figure out where it'* goin'?
Dual-lipped in construction, normally sold in matched pairs only.
price: 20.00 per pair (4.00 shipping)
The picture is below:

Gotcha. That'* the bearing and seal for the coupler end of the rotor shafts. I've never heard of anyone changing them. That would be a RARE necessity.

I think I need those. I've got grinding. Not in the snout. Coupler is fine. Noone seems to know what they are.

emails from the Rolling Performance guy (starting at the bottom):

Quote:
the bearings are the same as the back bearing on the snout shaft. There is
a seal in there also, I just haven't been able to identify it. It'* a
larger inside diameter than the bearing . I'll let you know as soon as i can

John,
I have replacement seals in stock as of today. They are double lip like
stock, but they are also Viton so they will stand up to heat much better
than the stockers. Bearings are stock also. I'll get you some pics up on
Monday.

Chris

Original Message:
I got the seal out, very strange size. It'* 1.375 OD, .86 ID, .217 wide
nothing standard by any seal mfg.
I have a factory that will make any size seal for me and am waiting for a
response from them.
