PSD used to chemical metal chargers for people if a pikey bodge was all they could afford. I ran a slut charger that was held together like that for a while, just relied on the intercooler strainer to catch any bits that fell out...

I ran my g60 blower like this for years without issues .. The power it made was crazy considering.

Mine held together too, but always worried about the lumps scrapping the motor if it shat itself.

That had always been my worry from day zero as well , not because of the "repairs"  , but a g40/g60 charger can let go without warning... G60 even more so. Top bearings usually seize and wipe the whole lot out.

Apex seals are ok if you can keep on top of them .. old ones shrink and punch a hole in the ends due to excessive movement.
