so i disassembled my charger yesterday to change the oil and have a look at the inside for wastage
for the people that can't get enough of my naked engine bay :D
disassembly of the pulley:
after that i tipped out the oil. sorry for the bad pics. the color looked like icetea just a bit thicker.
that stuff stinks terrible - i nearly passed out when i opened the oil drain screw *gg*
there didn' come out much oil (there should be about 100ml). for comparison: in the left bottle there are about 100ml of water, in the right the oil i caught from the charger
a pic of my ride if anything would have gone wrong :D
the rotor pack had a few scratches but was in a good condition as far as i saw. clearance was ok too.
a few scratches too, but not so bad like a buddy's charger i saw some time ago
i couldn't get loctite510 so i bought this. its for seal up gearboxes and engines, so i think it will work with the charger aswell
that stuff stinks even worse then the oil :D
i didn't want to wait for some special eaton charger oil so i bought gearbox oil (75w90). we'll see how clever that was...
that damned ring - i had no fitting pliers so i tried to put it back on with two small screwdrivers and it worked :)
ready to put it back in.
incl. testdrive it took me about 6 hours. it can be done much faster i guess but i didn't want to ruin the charger.
as there was less oil left i'll open it again in 10-15000km to check how much oil i'm loosing.
