    S/C shaft runout

    Anyone ever check the runout on their sc shaft with the impeller off? I was changing the seal on mine and threw a dial indicator on it and the shaft is running out .002. Im thinking it should be .000 turning 45,000 rpms. Im going to order a kit cause it will bother me thinking about the vibration factor. I guess it has already been running like this because no stress was put on it when I took the impeller off.
    Just wondering if anyone one has seen this and run one this way.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Dude, great minds think alike. I was just thinking the same thing earlier this week but didnt know the acceptable run-out for the shafts or bearings for that matter. I bet BRP would know but hell you cant get through to those people, I guess you have to be a dealer to get any type service from them. I would also like to know the answer to this question.
