No, because that is where one of the bearings is sitting, when you do this you really need to make sure and measure a few times so that you get it right, I finally did mine a few days ago and as soon as I added the grease that side of the shaft got quitter and smoother, this is by far one of the best ideas for the SC shaft, great job gompka

Can this be done without removing the entire sc. I don't want to take any chances with any shavings, or remove what I don't have to. It looks like the pulley bracket can be removed and held in front of the shaft to mark the location. I installed my sc, but never disassembled it.

Don't put too much grease in there, just a little bit is fine. And do it every oil change or two.

You can take off the whole shaft side, and then take out the shaft and do the fitting.

i would remove the pulley side before i drill and take the shaft/ bearings out to make sure you measure correctly

That's what I meant, the pulley bracket housing.

Take your time and measure, measure, measure, I lost count how many times I did, but I got it right and what ever you do do not buy the cheap tiny grease gun, cause they don't work, I found that out the hard way, here's the one I bought:


It holds the 14oz cartridges and it cost about $20, I used Mobil 1 synthetic grease and so far its working out fine, so good luck and I hope that helps. Oh....I did 3 pumps to begin with, but I first tested in on a piece of rag to see how much came out with one pump, then just by looking at it I calculated that 3 pumps would be ok to put in there.

-I know im probably bringing this Thread back from the dead, but I was wondering if their was someone in the Bay area that has done this. I only ask because I don't feel confident doing it, and don't have the resources to do it. Or if i get a chance, can I send it to you Gompka?

I did this little mod as I rebuilt the shaft, every oil change I give it 2 to 3 pumps of new synthetic grease and I have to say it has been great!

Good to hear that the Supercharged Scions are still running around!
