    Service life of SC bearings

    Does anybody know what the service life of the SC bearings are?

    Is it written somewhere like the shop manual?

    Anybody know?

    the only thing i see at the manuel is supercharger slipping moment inspect every 100 hrs
    and supercharger drive gear,shaft and lock washer perform every inspect,verify,clean,ajust,or replace every 200 hrs
    i kow it was mentioned before that some members who can build their own superchargers will rebuild them every 100 hrs just as a percaution.

    Every estimate I have heard is 100 hour`s. I have no idea where this came from, but I would guess they derived it from the clutch inspection info. I have never read this anywhere. If you play it safe 100 hour`s would be a good service point to prevent catastrophic failure.... Play at your own risk...

    bearings are kinda weird,,,there is no service life. Some fail and some never do. Needle bearings are designed for severe use.

    But S/C bearings are not Needle. They are caged ball on the shaft to housing body. The clutch has Needle on the drive gear....

    since they are caged and fed oli I`d say forever. But you really don`y know. To be safe change them every hundred. Can`t be expensive.
