Question on this charger failure.
Total bearing failure. Shaft is cocked sideways and locked the motor up. Not sure but appears all the ball bearings are trapped inside, but I don't see any pieces of the bearing cage. What may have gotten into the oil pumps/motor? Here are some pictures...
What is the best course of action for this failure? Check screens in both oil pumps and change oil/filter? Possibility of any damage to the gear in the motor?

My charger did the same thing and caused my ceramics to disintegrate. Unfortunately, I found smashed bearing on both sides of the engine. I would first pull the screens, split the supercharger, and see if you find them all.

First step would be to confirm that all 7 balls are still in the charger. As for the cage it is plastic and you will likely find it behind the front oil pump cover. If you find your missing pieces there and your flywheel is not hurt you are probably in good shape.

TBH, by the time this one has been re-built etc, you may be better buying a X Charger, and just putting this one down to pasture.
The impeller will have "touched-down" in the housing, and wrecked the outer casing too.
