    Alternative way to check SC slip?

    My dad wanted me to ask this question to you guys. He wants (for ruling out purposes) to check the slip on the SC by using a torque wrench and stopping the engine from turning. He doesn't have a cam tool and is afraid to stick your average screw driver down there. He had the idea of holding the drive shaft still with some vice grips which torquing the SC impeller.

    Would that work/be okay?

    Thanks

    all you need is a 1/4" extension. turn the motor over while adding very light down pressure to the extension till it falls down and locks the cam. bada-boom, proceed to check slip from there. people have said you could wedge a broom handle in the prop or something of that nature but i think the extension trick is waaaaay safe and eazy. also remember counter clockwise when your turning the motor over and checking slip

    Pulling the S/C out is not that hard to pull out to properly check the slip on it, there are removal instructions here: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...071#post243071

    i use the broom trick when i don't feel like touching anything, but if you really want to be safe you can use any screwdriver to lock the cam

    And even easier to stick the broom in the pump than removing the valve cover. imo

    I would just pull the SCer. Take the opportunity to check the Scer out. Clutch washers, gear, bearings, etc.

    If I pull the charger and open it up to check it out - will I have to buy a rebuild kit? I read somewhere that certain things had to be replaced every time you opened the thing.

    Bearings need to be replaced whenever you remove the shaft.
    You do not need to disassemble the supercharger to check the slip on it.
