I, uh, got my replacement bearings via UPS today. I was sent an email last week asking for my address because they wanted to send me a new set. What am I gonna say, "No?"

They'll go in the glove box for now.

I get mine delivered tomorrow which suprises me. I bought my kit used and didn't think I would get support outside of the tune, but IPF is looking out for me it seems.

That's actually pretty impressive...

Not only supporting your customers, but the guy your customer sold his kit to.

They had me send the pulleys back. I am just waiting now. The seized pulley is questionable on being reused so they are going to check it.

We got new bearings and spacers- apparently these are a slightly different width than the originals and these spacers are needed.

I haven't started the process yet, but it looks like a 36mm socket should work as a good "catcher" for pressing out the old bearings.

The instructions specify a 19mm to press out, and a 24mm socket to press the new bearings in.

Got mine yesterday and will be doing the swap this weekend. Too bad I won't be able to test it for a while since I need to drive the Mustang to break the gears in. 1 year and 7 months and the car just passed 10,000 miles today.

Looks like I'm going to be ordering some new idler pulley's since whoever was the dumbass that originally installed the spacers into the pulley's looks like they glued them in, I can't get them even after soaking the spacers in WD-40.

Yep, when I replaced mine I used PB to get the spacers out. Actually let them soak overnight and with a tap of a hammer they came out.
I ended up ordering another idler pulley set to have a backup. Now that I've seen the new bearings I'm happy with the quality they supplied over the first set. Going to test out the ceramic bearings I have this week when I have some time. These are ABEC 7 aerospace qual bearings. Should last forever !

Got some PB Blaster and soaked the spacers, but I'm screwed anyways. The top bolt is stripped on the loose side, so I am going to have to get a new bolt. Also going to have to take the supercharger off the car and tap it out it looks like. Looks like I'm going to be driving the Mustang for a while.

After a day and a half of soaking in PB the spacers still won't come out. I've actually was able to take the C-clip out while the spacer was still on and the bearings won't even move. Probably the only way to get it out is to cut and that would risk destroying the idler pulley, so I asked IPF for a price quote on 2 new ones.

The top pulley for me won't be coming out since the bolt is stripped badly. Found out though that I can remove the discharge pipe on the supercharger and get a better angle at it for doing an extraction, but the question is what extractor will be able to get a bolt out that is torqued to 75 ft-lbs?

Also glad that I did find out you can remove the discharge pipe, I can move mine to the side more to make clearance for the coolant pipe. Right now it lays against the supercharger.

This is a pain in the ass to get these bearings upgraded. Starting to wish IPF would have sent out 2 idler pulleys along with 2 M12 x 50mm FHSC since the bolts are supposed to be one time use only (the reason mine are stripped since this kit is used). I ordered 5 new bolts from a website so I can replace mine and not go through this again.

for anyone doing this, get yourself some hardened quality hex sockets, like Snap On, Matco or equillant. Even the Sears one break and strip out the bolts. Also like what was stated , get a spare set of idler pully bolts. I do not torque to 75 ft lbs, I use german specs, good-n-tight Never had an issue. you still only need to loosen the top 3 small spacers and then remove the 2 idler bolts, they will slide out the top.

I stripped one too, I tapped a torx bit into the hole and got lucky...
try freezing the pully assemble and then adding a little heat only to the outer pully, press them out of use a bfg(big freaking hammer) and tap them out from the proper side, use a large socket to support the pully and leave an opening for the bearings to fall into. Those bearings are already bad, so who cares if they get damaged further. remember there are 2, once out you can tap the spacers free

agree a little heat. Do not use PB blaster it is no good. Use the Areo-kroil, for soaking bolts maybe tap the head with a hammer to jar the threads loose.

doing mine in the am guys... appreciate all the tips, etc.

wasn't expecting the upgraded bearings so soon, so I popped for the ceramics- now I have to re-use the old spacers!

any other suggestions to ease this switch are welcome.
Thanks !
