Scored some HX35 parts.
The question is has anyone seen a blade set up up a groove in the side of the blades? There is obvious wear further up but the groove does not look like it is wear.
Think this may have been used on a Ricer Rocket.
Cheers Steve

Looks like a combination of hill-billy mixed-flow turbine modification and debris damage!

About what I was thinking also.
Even the back has been tapered off and there is no sign of what could have done that in use.
That actual bearing housing is worn so will be looking at using another housing I have that I hope will fit.

That looks like someone was playing with something they knew nothing about. HX35W turbine units are balanced at the factory and that mess had to be baddy out of balance. What did the compressor side look like?

Comp side was good until it was shipped without locking the housings together, couple of bent fins now.
But I scored 2 HX35 turbine housings which is what I was chasing.
Was just curious as to what someone had been trying to achieve apart from making a mess.

There are a couple different HX35W models. Early versions had an 8 blade compressor wheel that is 54mmx83mm. Later models used a 7 blade the is 54mmx78mm which would boost a little quicker. Turbine side was the same on both types.

That 7 blade showed up in the late 1998 models of the Dodge. It has one drawback over the earlier style. The boost control module is attached to the compressor housing instead of the turbine housing so changing the clocking for different mounting positions is a bit tough.

As Dougal put it, hill billy playing.
Have 2 turbine housings with the waste gate control on them. The Compressor housing has the Cummins/Holsett number that indicates this was off an International. The CHRA seems to be a common unit.
May just need a little repair to the CHRA housing and a new compressor wheel. Have another rebuilt H1C to rat for the turbine wheel and shaft as I believe they are the same. Or just fit one of the turbine housings to the H1C.
Going to be a little while till I have time to play
Cheers Steve
