Maybe someone could help me here. I'm trying to find a good deal on bearings which has been hard. Here is what I've found the SKF 6205JEM low speed bearing that goes on the input shaft is fairly inexpensive and available almost anywhere Napa, and most auto parts stores have them for $19 a piece. The seals also can be had insome of the auto parts stores in my area for $4 a peice. The problem is the high speed angular contact bearing SKS 7003cd/p4adga is very expensive. Prices ranged from $350 to my best price of $258 for a set. I called many places and when asked for a better price all would come down on the price as stated by Dedicated50. Now when I asked for them to cross to the alternative bearing listed the best price was on the NFK7003ctydul at $180 a set also a high speed angular contact bearing. Much better, but I would like to get the price down more.
I'm trying to make this rebuild worth it $$$$ wise because I called Jamie at Vortech and he qouted me $369 for a seal and bearing rebuild on an SQ. With shipping both ways say $60 with insurance. it bring the Vortech rebuild price to $429.
My rebuild parts cost comes to $226 bearings and seal best price. that a $203 dollars savings doing it myself.
So $203 - $60 shipping = $143 which would be the labor charge I would have payed to vortech. Thats pretty good I have to admit.
But in the end if I can save $203 and learn on my own how to rebuild my blower its still worth it.
If anyone here has contacts or can get these bearing cheaper than please chime in because it would make this rebuild more feesable for myself and others.
