    call around: The Blower Shop, RCD, RCB, Mooneyham, Hampton, Dyers, just to name a few...i would think if you sent them just the rotors, it wouldnt cost too much! ...just sayin' my .02 cents

    If you know how to time the rotors, stripping it is relatively easy. You can buy the stripping from any of the shops. It goes much easier if you put the strips in a pan of fairly warm water. It makes the strips more plyable.

    I take it your saying they peened over the edge of the rotor to lock the strip in? Then yes, you have to clear that away. I don't think you going to be able to peel it out. I just hook it with a sharp scribe and pull it out. And pull the new one in the same way. The strip will be longer than the rotor by quite a bit. Just pull it till its past the end of the rotor, and cut each side off flush. Don't know exactly why its dimpled to hold the strip in. You don't want nylatron. Its more of a alky deal. With out enough fuel going thru the blower, it can be hard on the case, gets the case hot, and wipes itself out. It needs quite a bit of fuel to keep it happy. Long idle periods will wipe it out.

    I have never done it but I did read that you want to wear gloves when pulling the strips back in. Also, let the new strips sit a day or two to relax into the length they want to be, then cut.
