    anybody ever drill the hole in supercharger housing?

    I have a ET 140 in a older Rude Supercharger housing. It currently does not have the hole to lube the bearings. Has anyone ever just drilled their own hole into the housing?

    Thanks

    if you do drill it, your best bet is wait until the 100 hours cause you will have to rebuild it. you need to remove the bearings and shaft to keep the shavings from going in there.

    yeah it sucks b/c it was just rebuilt!! It currently has 0 hours on it. I didn't think about drilling the hole to lube the bearings.

    Khoa....take your S/C to WFO. Rich can also replace the bearings with SKF bearings after drilling the lube port.

    I might have to do that. It just sucks that I haven't even used the supercharger(still has 0 hours on it), but I am basically getting it rebuilt again. lol.

    Call (Text) Rich (WFO) before you go to his shop. I don't know what his schedule is, but he stocks the correct SKF bearings.

    That hole is not there to lube the bearings. That's a huge misconception on this forum. That hole is simply an oil drain hole to let oil out

    From the constant pressure of the new 08+ oiling system. Khoa I used a bunch of SCers back in 04-05-06
    and no oiler and all was perfect.

    I wouldnt touch your new 0 hour SCer. IMO
