That bearing is for the low-speed input side. It is the exact same bearing that Vortech uses. It is the high-speed side that spins to 50,000 rpm. But you knew that already didnâ€™t you? Seems to me that you are just trying to freak people out and make them think that Vortech is the only people can work on these blowers.
That bearing is NOT the same one that we use! The bearings we use are made for us...Like I said in the other post about this topic...you cannot purchase the bearings and seals that we use. If these work for you and do not cause future failures, then congrats. The blower is your property you can do with it as you wish. What I don't like is when they get rebuilt incorrectly and fail again. This leads to a "My Vortech Broke Again" mentality. This is not good for us.
