    Re: Maggie spins but I have no boost!!!!

    I guess there is a plastic coupler if you will, between the three pins on the input shaft and the three pins on the rotor set. I guess those can fail. Which could be why it just decided to fail and when it did there was no sound. I'm looking at replacements right now.

    Glad you found something right away. Kinda sucks that it was overlooked when Magnuson "checked it out".

    Thats what I was thinking but sometimes things just fail with no sign of fatigue. At first I was like they better fix it, it was just there! But I'm over that attitude and I've already sent a message to the guys on the ebay link. They also port blowers and that may be a cheap hp gain until I can get a 122. They claim 30-35 on Eaton M112 blower which as I understand are not as "opened up" as the MP112. I probably wont see that much but hey, its off, why not. We'll see what they charge.

    Mine has been perfect since the initial bad bearing.

    Oh, man, a friggin' ten dollar part! What a PITA! Guess I didn't know that it had that part in there.

    Is that internal to the rotor housing? Do you dare do it, or is it definitely a Magnuson repair?

    That sucks.. Hoping for the best. Usually with "good" designs, things are meant to fail safe. Bypass valve sticking open, a coupler failure.. and so on. Yes it is annoying that things fail and it seems like the chargers are quite troublesome for the cost. Cool as hell, just problematic. I want one, really, but just do not want the frustrations I hear about here, granted bad news spreads faster that good.

    I was a maintenance engineer for GM.. I learned one thing from machines and assembly equipment. It was rarely the big expensive component that gets you. It was almost ALWAYS be some menial $0.05 component. Designers spend much time focussing on fit, form, and function of major and key components, but spend little time looking at failure modes of the lesser "purchased" sub-components. Again good designs fail safe. If the coupler failed, maybe it did its job and did not take the entire assembly with it.

    Maybe a silver lining - maybe a tin lining because you still were effected by the failure.

    I could do it but I think I'm going to send it out to another company and have it ported as well. Looks like its going to be around 350 give or take to port it, rebuild the drive snout with new bearings and seal, and have the coupler replaced with their stronger CNC's coupler. I'm awaiting a final total right now but that should be close.

    Any idea what part of that $350 is just the porting?

    My impression is that the 3 pins on each half are long enough to overlap - even if the coupler was gone, the pins should hit each other (but with massive lash). I hope it is just the connector, but it doesn't seem as though that is possible.
