    X Charger oil hole location - drilling old style SC

    I want to drill my SC housing for better oil supply to the bearings. Can anybody help me out with the exact location? Would love to know the angle the hole is at.

    Funny i am doing mine right now!!! My Rude has it at about 9 oclock looking from the clutch side. I have decided to put an extra one in at 12 oclock aswell to vent. I am doing my B kit aswell with 2 holes and got some NSK 6200 c3 bearings to go with it.

    Nice one sniper.
    Did you drill them 90 degrees to the shaft or at an angle?

    Thought most were using the SKF bearings? SKF 6200/C3/TN9??????

    Supplying more oil to the SC bearings can only be a good thing.
    Think some had issues with oil leaking through the seal because you are supplying more oil at this area. Now with the Viton seals the oil leaking shouldn't be an issue.

    SKF were out of stock over here so i got NSK with same specs. I put in another hole at 12 oclock on about 30 deg angle .The one at 9 oclock is the leveler so the cavity can"t fill right up , only about half way!!!! THe one on top i put a large chamfer on so oil can get in as is only splash fed !!!
