    Supercharger wheel installion question

    I am installing a new wheel, following the directions I was told I did not need the gear lock or holding bracket tools. So I am a bit lost. Have the bolts out of the blower...now how hard is it to separate the two halves? I am not doing too well. Also how do I hold the wheel to remove it and install the new one? Thanks.

    Here's instructions on how to remove the wheel without the gear holding tool:

    As long as you don't have corrosion in the housing, gently tapping the outlet tube with a mallet should separate the halves. Make sure to have some 1211 or similar "liquid gasket" silicone on hand for reassembly.

    Thanks. For some stupid reason, I still can't bust it open. I tried lightly tapping....now tapping hard.

    When reinstalling it only takes a VERY THIN line of high temp silicone sealer to seal the two halves back together. I went around the groove, then drug my finger around only leaving a tiny line behind and still had some squeeze out. Just don't overdo it.
