Recon the blower

Guys

I've spent hours searching the net for a company that will recon the bower and nothing. I know I can get secondi from breakers Eric. But want to send mine and a refurb on back. Any ideas in the uk

I believe he is talking about the supercharger. Many motor heads refer to a supercharger as a "blower."

You'd be better off buying the one from the breakers.

I doubt there's anyone around who could actually do the job apart from an enthusiastic engineer with lots of time on their hands.

There used to be a guy on the uk mini forums who used to refurbish superchargers. I can't find any recent activity from him. I'm sure if an engineering company was to offer this service and promoted through thers forums, it would be a lucrative business.

Yeah sorry guys, I assumed everyone had heard if the term "the blower", charger, supercharger, compressor, spinner.😊

I agree I can get one from a breaker but there is zero reason why that would be better than the one I have.

In any case, my point was that there seems to be loads of companies, uk or Europe that recondition superchargers, but I cannot find one that will recondition the blower.....sorry supercharger and hoped someone here knew of one. I mean its basically a few bearings and seals that need swapping.

I will have to call around and if I find one in the UK I will let all know.

Cheers
