If if you have any further questions please feel free to give me a call.

The turbine is with Jet Central Brazil. Its open and the bearings will be changed. I know the best is to change the compressor but this is a project that crashed on maiden. I got a new plane and I'm trying to save as much as I can on this overbudget project.

So Jet Central Brazil gave me the option to not replace compressor if it can be balanced. They told me could be some risks but can be done. I posted here to get some opinions on the risk so I can make a decision. So do you think Im good to use this part replacing bearing and balancing compressor?

Thanks for your help
