high point balancer for gasser fan hubs?
Hi,

Does the high point balancer fit the MinAir Spectra and Predator fans? It seems in other threads I have seen that people had to custom machine larger cones to support the fan on the balance. I would like to order the balancer but if I can't get cones to fit it would be useless.

Thank you,

Tom

Idea that may work.
I made my on cone's BUT : This might work for guy's looking for a easy solution.

Go to a old school plumbing department and get into the phenolic and hard rubber faucet washers.

They come in a variety of diameters and tapers along with different durometer's. Then all you must do is change the hole diameter and back them up with the OEM cones.

Mine seem to fit OK
I've had my balancer for quite some time and have been able to do all the fans that I put together with it. I've even checked rotors with it as well, though I leave that for the experts now.

Don't let the cone fit issue stop you from ordering a High Point balancer. Although I don't know if the actually High Point balancer is still in production. You can always run to your local machine shop and have them make you an adapter.
