    The engine stops very F*#$%EN suddenly,..and once you get it apart, finding eight balls is a godsend.

    once it ceases, it probably destroys the blade right?

    I think on the higher boost charges you should be doing it way sooner. I'd be doing it every 50 hours for piece of mind. Cost of new bearings is peanuts to the repair bill of bearings letting lose on a 4-tec.

    wow, rest in peace. i've got 40 hours on a s3 charger and just did rude conversion, should i necessarily rebuild the charger? like i said earlier, there is no slack in the shaft

    I think end play spec. is around .007. That would be pushing the impeller toward the drive gear and pulling back. If you feel more than that your bearings are more than likely on their way out and will go quick.
