Yes, the 4oz. bottle from Eaton is all that is needed for the 62. Find on Ebay for around $12. shipped.
It sounds like you are describing a hybrid bearing. You can get a complete ceramic bearing also. I was going to do that...but have not gotten around to that yet... And they use the same numbers.Jeff_R1
What is the c-clip your talking about ? Is it specialty or something I can get anywhere ?
I am trying to get everything I need in advance. I am down needing that c-clip and the choice in bearings.
You said that the bearings needed were "6303 and a 6204 bearing"
Does anyone know what the correct or corresponding ceramic bearing numbers would be ? Is there really any advantages to using ceramic bearings ? Reading the rebuild site they certainly tout the advantages... "40% less friction and the balls are 60% lighter"
So you didn't go the ceramic bearing rout? Are you at least up and running?Hold my beer...
I don't think I am going to mess with the needle bearings, just going to grease them up.
I honestly don't expect any increased or enhanced boost, but hopefully it will quiet down a little and I won't have to take my SC off again in the intermediate future.
It sounds like the start of a joke : What happens when you overdrive a supercharged Lotus ?
I am working on the punchline ? : Your in the garage a lot cursing watching money burst into flames
dunno need to work on that one. heh. Thanks again all. peacb
hybrid or complete ceramic bearings? What is their cause of failure? What is their failure rate in comparison to steel ball bearings? Is their load rating higher or lower than their steel counterparts? A little more information please...Be cautious of going the ceramic bearing route. Ceramic bearing's do not wear out not like steel bearings, their failures are commonly catastrophic. Your supercharger will probably not be rebuildable afterwards.
Post photos and details...I'm very interested in going the ceramic rout too!I got the rear clam off ( For the 1st Fn time !:clap: and I am moving along with removal of the SC.
My jaw dropped when the clam just came right off. It changed how I think about this car now. I can do anything. It was funny when I just could not deny the realism of the futility of trying to do all this with the clam on. It's just not that hard to get that thing off after all !:up:
I did get the full ceramic bearings and I am gonna just "roll" with them
