That SC is wore out. Dark screws means the seals are shot. It's a typical failure on those blowers. They're 1850 plus core to have them rebuilt. I have one of these I'm putting on my miata, and I'm gonna try to rebuild it, but I'll have to source bearings and have new custom seals made, as they don't exist.

Don't know, I haven't actually done one yet. If mine turns out good I'll let you know. There's definately a market for affodable rebuilds, cause all the millenia owners shell out 2K for a rebuilt blower.

50 is a good bid. I've seen them go for more like 300 when people clean them up and claim they don't leak oil, but maybe 1 out of 100 used ones on Ebay don't leak oil.

PM me if you need assistance finding a good place to make your custom seals. I've got a few shops here in the south I work with on a daily basis. Good people.

For bearings check out RBC, they make excellent equipment at a reasonable price.
