    Would you use this X charger wheel as is?

    What are your opinions on using this X charger wheel? I ask because it has 2 tiny knicks in 2 of the top corner tips of the blades. I would think it would be ok to use, but wanted to see what others thought.

    Thats what I was thinking, just clean it up a little and go with it.

    Thats why I was concerned a little just because of the R's they turn, but it is so minor.


    Being able to use this wheel, I can be into an X charger for just the cost of the machine work on the rear housing and rebuild kit so I'd be into it for minimal money.

    Hi Gus, you be fine with that wheel. I had one just like it. I ran it for almost a month without no problem. I recommend to look very closely for any possible cracks on the topside vortex fins. Good Luck My Friend!
