calling anyone w/ supercharger experience!

Postby silverbullet » Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:16 am

I am really making a push now to get my supercharger done. One thing on my check list should be easy but I just can't find this out. how do I check the oil level in the supercharger? On the car? Off the car? Fill it to the top or what? Help me out here guys, thanks.

Looking at the SC from the nose side there is a allen head screw about 5 O'clock. There you can check the level, drain or refill. If you have the SC out it is easier to drain it. With the SC in the car, on a level surface, when you remove that allen screw the fluid should just barely come out or be at the level of the hole.

If you have it out and it's never been changed before it might be a good time to do so because that fluid is about 8 years old.

Awesome thank you. The fluid actually should be good it was changed not too long ago. Just wanted to know the level was good before I ran it. Thanks, I suspected that would be the way to do it but had no real info to go on.

Let us know how the project goes! I believe your car is DBW so it will be an interesting setup.

Nope No dbw for me. Hopefully no more delays.
I have talked with monkeywrench a bit so they are ready to tune it.

My emanage boomslang harness should arrive tomorrow. Once I get all that set up amd get any kinks out ill be ready for the final step. I'll be installing all the hardware on a weekend and be on the dyno on Monday.
