New to this so by new bearings you mean the needle bearings in the back of the case?
I'm interested. Been looking for a late model. Can I use my early model rotor pack and just swap it in? Need to get rotors coated to make the swap worth while?
If I can use the nose of my blower on the late model case I would be in for an inlet.
Yes, your early rotors and nose will work just fine. And, yes can replace the needle bearings in the back.
