Being an engineer i know how to set clearance's etc but never done a blower. We have always sent failed blowers away to be re-stripped and rebuilt or junked them if really bad. Just kept to my hemi and chevy rebuilds.
Ive never come up with this before but do i drain it? Is it there for a reason?
But yeah its going to be on my mind forever if i dont do anything about it! Think its very odd!
Thanks again!
Chances are the rotors got liquid in them when they were cleaned. When you remove the rotor end plugs, any liquid inside can be removed. And I would recommend you drain any liquid that's in them.
