So I stripped the tubby down today:
I was going to get a new CHRA but due to lack of funds thought sod it over haul it myself and send it to the place in Blackpool for balancing. I know a few lads on here have used them, but what do you actually send them? The whole CHRA:
or just the shaft:
And if it is just the shaft how does the balancing work if you have to take the compressor wheel off to fit back into the CHRA? I'm guessing they put a mark on the shaft and comp wheel to align back to...
According to there website they only need shaft and wheels:
Turbo Rebuild are pleased to offer a balancing service for the ultimate home Turbo rebuild. For only £50 which includes return postage (for a limited period only) you can send us your Turbo turbine shaft, compressor wheel, shaft nut and thrust collar and usually within 48hrs we will have returned your freshly balanced Turbo parts together with balancing printout. All Turbo rotors are balanced to as near perfect as possible in some cases to 0.001g but always to within manufacturer tolerances.
Really confused doesn't take much to confuse a Welshmen I guess
Oh found out why the shaft had a bit of play in it! Bearings fucked
