    yes, they are for all year superchargers.

    No grease needed to hold them in place. They have a wax backing that holds them together.

    i just coated them in oil and put them in 1 at a time, the oil held them back for me, wasnt a problem. Having a little screwdriver to move them around helps aswell.

    The wax can be a problem - I use a piece of 1/4" wide tape (sticky) then wrap the tape with the pins around the shaft - slide the gear on 1/2 way then remove the tape. Great way to remove the pins also. Always place a clean cloth underneath
