    Hi

    Can any one help me in locating the following oil seal please?

    It is a Viton - SCJ - 10.5x21x5, the original seal is a SOG (SO Giant) it needs to be the 10.5 internal diameter as the shaft is 10.3

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Seal - 10.5x21x5.

    Hi SpeedyGee, hope you're well.

    Its actually the output shaft seal on the Rotrex Supercharger I'm attempting to rebuild.

    Cheers, will get in touch but tried a good few major seal companies and it's the 10.5 causing the issue.

    Hey Dave,

    Unfortunately I don't believe we can help you on this one. If you'd like I can drop our supplier a message, however given that they're in America and we don't currently have any open orders with them, if they can help the shipping costs will be fairly high and that will be reflected in the price.

    If you'd like us to try just drop us an email here sales@h-tune.co.uk

    Thanks

    Hi Josh

    Thanks for the reply and looking into it mate. The only place I know of too is America and the cost is not worth it. Speaking with our seal supplier he says the seal I removed and gave him is in good nick so will try re-using that first before I pay the £100 to have one seal delivered.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Hey Dave,

    No worries. Hopefully the seal is fine as from what I could see sourcing a new one seems damn near impossible.

    Good luck with the rest of your rebuild :Smile:

    Cheers Josh, It appears Rotrex have had the last laugh with this seal as everything else is just of the shelf bearings etc so probably there exclusivity card :-/ . I'll keep posted and do an update on my Mod log for those interested :Smile:

    Cheers

    Cheers DrSam, I saw those but It should be 10.5 as it will grab and it should really be Viton where that one is Nitrile as they Viton has a higher heate range due to the shaft spinning up to 100,000 RPM (yes, that's correct). So a smaller seal will grab more creating more heat and the heat range of the Nitrile being less could cause an issue. Our seal suppliers seem to think the original is in good nick so going with that for now or it's an extortionate price from the States!

    Thanks for you help though, much appreciated.

    You don't fancy taking the family on a holiday to the US and just concededly be in the vicinity of the company that sells the seal :Tongue:

    @Bones126 did you get this sorted mate? I only ask as I'm currently in discussion with 'superchargersonline.com' about ordering some bits from the States for my Vortech 'charger.

    I'm waiting for confirmation on availability of certain parts, and already have a pretty painful shipping cost to foot, so if what you need can be sourced and put in with my parcel then I'm more than happy to help, drop me a PM :Thumbup:

    I don't understand how we can ship to the USA so cheaply, but coming back this way is eye-watering!
