    Which way round do sc bearings go?

    Hi folks, just a quick one....are the RXP sc bearings fitted with the open part of the cage facing the impeller or engine ?

    Cheers

    What bearings do you have? Mine look identical on both sides unless u look real close and see were the one cage side wraps around to the other where they are crimped together which shouldnt make a difference

    Should be no seals. Open both sides

    I think the closed side faces the impeller

    Hi, they are the standard ones that come with the latest rebuild kit.

    Open one side, closed the other...

    Cheers

    From the manual.

    CAUTION: Both ball bearings have to be installed with
    cages facing supercharger impeller side.

    Quite logical this, open cage facing where the oil comes from. Use the tools correctly when pressing in the bearings. The manual that comes with the kit does not cover this well, use the shop manual.

    The open side's of the bearings face the motor side of the supercharger. The red "cage" side of the bearings faces the supercharger wheel....
