That your item arrives quickly. Re dedicated to providing a 5 star. This ad is for our Base rebuild bearing & seal set for the Eaton M45 supercharger. We use Genuine OE Eaton INA case bearings and Quality SKF brand snout bearings selected to OE spec for OE temperature and speed requirements. Vehicle: BMW Mini John Cooper Works (JCW) 1.6 Ltr.1 x High Temp Viton Snout Seal - 1 x SKF Outer Snout Bearing - 1 x SKF Inner Snout Bearing - 2 x OE INA Needle Roller Case Bearing - 1 x High Temp Viton Case-to-PTO seal - 185ml of supercharger oil in a reusable 200ml plastic bottle. Snout bearings are one of the most common element to wear out on a supercharger as they are taking the undamped strain of the drive belt. Fortunately with a few workshop tools such as a hydraulic press and if needed a blow lamp they can be replaced with this kit. A major sign that your bearings might need to be replaced is a rattle and rumble from the supercharger at idle.
When worse excessive supercharger noise can be heard showing a sign of futher case bearing failure, typically in these superchargers the main drive through bearing to the rotors (included in this sale). Included in our kit is a PTO case seal, the Mini supercharger is unique in that the water pump is driven off the end of the rotors. This means an additional gearbox is inbuilt on this blower which unfortuantly is a very common failure point. Failures arise from seal leakage which if left too long can destroy the gearbox gears and the PTO bearings.
We advise inspecting this to determine what level of repair kit you might need. We can supply rebuild kits for the remainder of the PTO if needed seperately or in our Base rebuikd + PTO kit. Most motor manufacturers overlook the strain placed on oil by high rotational speeds of superchargers and treat the oil as being filled for life this is not good practice!
Often, by 40 or 50,000 miles and certainly at higher mileages, the oil can come out like old gravy. Of course, thats usually long past the time that warranties have run out but by this time the vehicle makers are unconcerned.To preserve supercharger life, the oil needs changing and we recommend this is done by no later than 40,000 miles.
