Default Roots Blower Service Needed

I am in need of sending my blower in that is off of my 525SC. It is a standard Weiand 177 Roots blower. Please let me know of any reputable shops preferably near Northwest Indiana. I have gas in the gear oil in the rear case. Thanks in advance!

How do you get fuel in there??????? Its a sealed rear case completely separate, even from the front. How often are changing lube??? Should be at least every 50 hrs.

Thanks for the reponses. I have found that this is common with these blowers from what everyone is telling me. The oil was changed every 50 hours.

I had one rear fuel dilluted case. I installed new bearings from a local supplier and found the gaskets and seals on line. All in all it was about $50. Let me know if you'd like the source on the gaskets and seals. The bearings are run of the mill.

Dito on the blower shop. Very up front and they send you the old parts back that they replace. Probly cost about a grand.

The Blower Shop is good.
However, Darren Mayer Performance Engineering has faster turnaround, and is practically in your back yard. I've used them both.
