    Help with changing X SC gear from stock 16 to 17 tooth

    Hello. I need to do this to a new X SC. Do you guys know what exact tools are needed? I need needle bearings from Jerry I'm told. Are the needle bearings on the site for $18.00ish the same for an 08" x sc and a 03" gtx 4tec supercharger?

    No other mods or work will be done to this X SC.

    Thank you,
    Rick

    they make a full bracket that holds the SC while you work on it, it fits into a vise.
    also a gear holding tool, and a shaft holding tool. but the same work can be performed without any of the fancy brackets or tools, either on the bench with a pair of socket wrenches or with the assistance of a vise to hold one of the sockets for you.
    i prefer to work in a vertical orientation, with the SC sitting in a socket atop a vise.
    leaves both my hands free to work.
    you can flip the SCeither way depending which side you are working on/ trying to hold.

    Sounds like you'll be flying in to SoCal soon to help me do this! I guess I don't need the new needle bearings?

    hey rick, you can reuse teh new ones, thats a good point, just make sure not to loose any, find out how many there are and count them carefully so you are sure you have them all, and then make sure you get them reinstalled, all of them.
    water will chime in and tellyou the trick to put them all back in, i always used new ones, but i was always working with rebuild kits, or replacing old worn parts, so the old bearings were not worth keeping with a new gear etc.

    ok here is 2 posts about bearings, there are 40 of them, dont drop them into the SC, or drop them onto the floor use a rag to catch them all. you can reuse the brand new ones that you will get with your X SC, jsut dont loose any!!!!!

    For $20.00. It may be easier to buy new ones.
