View Full Version : M90 repair possibilities?

10-22-2005, 12:40 PM
The SC i had just got had a little rattle from the supercharger... No biggie, i took it apart the coupler is broken along with 2 of the pins! I was wondering if i can get replacement pins too? I searched but no luck. I guess i could always get some cheap metal rods, to cut them to fit... Or an ebay blower...
Any thoughts?

You can find the coupler at this site here. (http://www.texasthunderbirds.com/)

Scroll all the way near the bottom.

The COUPLER is availible

Wynn Carter of Texas thunderbirds makes them and they are also availible on ebay (Im not sure if Wynn is up and runnign since the hurricane hit his area)

As for the pins

Which Pins are broken?

The Ones on the gear for the rotorpack or the ones for the snout?

I dont think the pins are replaceable

You can pick up a used m90 for around 100.00-150.00 off this site

I have one pin broken on the rotor pack, and one on the nose assembly.

In your positition Id say your better off just purchasing a Used Blower Off this site

By the time you purchase a Snout/shaft and a rotor pack you will be at the same Price The peice can be pressed off the snout shaft
But this isnt a DO it yourself Job unless you have the correct tools

It would be much easier to purchase a used blower

Look on this site for people parting out SCs
you should be able to find a cheap one

I have the entire thing apart already, but i'm gonna get a used blower... This one had a little play in it, needs bearings.

The supercharger is shot,it is not worth fixing.Get a used one on here or buy a replacement,the one you have is not useable unless you replace the parts with a doner sc.
