    Blower lube

    If you guys want a good gel lube for a roots, check out Drummond American's "Prism Gel Lube" part#DA6880. It is great stuff. Alot of people have taken it and sold it with their own "Blower Lube" label on the can. We were buying it from a repackager until we figured out where it was coming from. Look at www.drummondamerican.com Good luck, Dan

    Maybe a better question, regarding my current topic (yes, I'm thread hijacking), would be...

    How tough is it to remove the front bearing plate with rotors still attached on an SSI?

    I've done a standard roots, unstripped that I didn't care about before, but I don't want to hose a good blower.

    We have now problem doing that on our SSI. The big thing you have to be real careful about is not overtightening those bolts that go into the case. They are super easy to strip out. Make sure you get the correct stripping because on some SSI's it is different and racers use the wrong stuff. Call Rich or TJ at SS! 440.243.8668

    We have a series B with a mag case and this is the data I got from SSI:

    SSI Series B rotor
    Use round white Teflon stripes --- .063” wall tube type, .254” OD

    Rotor end clearance is .007” with all bolts torqued in place.

    Use 16 oz of 75-90W Synthetic gear oil. Redline ShockProof is best.

    Rear bearings use wheel bearing grease

    Large bolts holding rotors are torqued to 95 ft lbs with red Loctite

    5/16 bolts into the case are 40 ft lbs. (I normally only go to 30 ft lbs because it scares me)

    And I still owe you a reply on your email.

    Mike;

    Good info, but I guess I should have been more specific.

    How much hassle, and can I screw anything up (other than stripping out bolts) is it to simply remove the front/rear bearing plates, leaving the rotors attached to the front plate, so I can have the case powder coated?

    WJ, I think I see what you are asking...you want to take it out leaving the end frame and gears on so all you have to do is slide it back together..I don't think that will work..were do you live? wish you lived close I would do it for you and shoe you how to do your blower.it is very simple once you have watched..Dave Lowe

    Dave,

    Actually, Wizbang and I discussed it tonight... I think I'm going to attempt removing the rear bearing plate, then tapping on the rear rotor shafts with a dead blow hammer, pushing both rotors and the front bearing plate out together.

    I can then take JUST the case and have it powder coated.

    Make sense?

    I just talked to SSI. I asked if they have ever done a blower dyno comparison. he said they just always use it.
    Sooooo, I had it in my blowers and I didn't know it. damn, I thought I could gain a little more by using it. :(

    It needs to be used all the time to seal the blower and reduce wear on the stripes.

    1-800-442-8663 Ext 4029 or 1-800-458-3222 Ext 4029
    I talked to Dave at Drummond American today.
    They have a $50.00 min. order and each can is something like $11.50 each.

    Six cans would last me for about 6 years.....

    Hope this helps.

    Be good, Jim

    So how often should it be sprayed on.
    I watch boost numbers very close and never saw a decline this past season.

    I haven't really figured out how much is too much and how much is too little. This year I am going to spray it just a little between rounds and see how it goes. I don't mean flood it.

    We normally open the butterflies and spray from front to back before each start (you can also spray from back to front :p).
