    Rebuilding Blower

    I have done a lot of reading on here about blower rebuilds and I am a big "do it yourselfer". i have a new 14 rxpx and i am approaching 70 hrs on the clock and as a preventive measure in the next 10 or so hrs I was going to rebuild the blower. For those of you that have done it yourself, is this a job that can be done yourself for the first time, or is this something I should watch a pro do before attempting? I am going to be using a 137+4 wheel here very soon as well and want to make sure its good to go.

    Thanks guys!

    That seems alittle too soon. The 14 blowers are supposed to be good for 200 hrs. I'm at 84hrs now and I plan to do a rebuild at like 180hrs or so.

    I thought Jerry has recommended rebuilds every 100 hrs or so. I want to check slip anyway as i seem to be missing a tad bit of midrange power and im not sure if slip has anything to do with that or not. When I whack the throttle boost seems a little delayed from when I first got the ski, or I may just be paranoid lol

    I would have the slip checked sometimes it needs to be adjusted but other then that just ride it and have fun!

    If you have a press, and the right adapters for the press, shop manual, you can rebuild it.
    if not, let the pro's do it.

    Thanks for the reply, when you say rebuild, i am assuming you mean new needle bearings, clutches and spring washers?

    Hes talking about the whole charger....You want to rebuild them at or around 100 hours....DO NOT listen to the hype going on with the 200 hour rebuild time frame..The FAG bearings(Shaft) are in need of replacement after every 100 hours as is most clutch washers...SO if your smart,youll keep your rebuilds to 100 hours..

    As far as rebuilding them yourself..It CAN be done with the right tools,time and patience....it is a process that is not to be rushed and attention paid to.....otherwise you could create a ticking time bomb for your ski and motor if not done right..

    Imo the small cost jerry charges on top of parts is worth it. If you mess it up and it blows you typically destroy the blower beyond repair and blow the engine. Possible 3-4k in repairs maybe more.

    Unless you do this kinda thing a lot it's best left to a pro.
