    supercharger needle bearing installation help

    I just installed an 08 clutch and im worried about the needle bearings. I cut the bearings out from the vacuum pack, peeled them off the cardboard and installed them with iosflex grease. Im worried the adhesive backing is still on the bearings, Is that possible?

    no. the bearings will not fit onto the shaft with the bearing if you left anything on them..

    I thought it would be fun to rebuild the supercharger so I bought the tools and it went smooth, but i'm so stressed out about every detail. Hopefully everything goes good when I try it this weekend so I can sleep again! I should have sent it to Jerry!

    If you are talking about a clear adhesive, don't worry it's a kind of wax to hold the bearings together, it will melt with heat.
