    SC Inspection and other questions

    Hey folks!
    I did a quick inspection of my SC by taking off my intake hose and checking to see if the inside wheel has any play in it. It was rock solid, which is great.
    But, I noticed oil dripping out of my intake hose. Is this normal?

    (Currently have 187 hours on the clock) (New engine and SC at 110 hours in 2007)

    Also.. I noticed like only two screws mount the SC to the engine. How else is the supercharger connected to the engine? I see it connects to the engine, but can't tell what is going on. My first thought is that it is gear driven, maybe? I would like to know more.

    Last question... What are the correct oil levels for cold and warm operations to check on the dip stick? I still haven't got a clear answer.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    1/2 way up the stick when checking cold will show top of the stick when checking it on the water warmed up, idle for 30 seconds and waiting 30 seconds. Oil in the discharge tube is coming from a leaking seal behind the SC wheel. Here is the fix for the seal: http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1664

    Oh god... my dip stick shows my oil level (when cold) to be above the groove. I haven't checked it after it has been warmed up. I made a diagram of where my oil level is (when cold)

    And this is why you have oil in your supercharger.
    It's normal to get some oil in the supercharger when running the stock air intake. The engine crankcase ventilation system is plumbed into the air intake tract. If the oil is over filled you will have more oil drawn in and this is what you see in your supercharger.

    Your oil seal behind your supercharger impeller is fine

    You should have three bolts connecting the supercharger to the engine.

    Ok cool. So just remove oil till I get to #2 on my diagram? (when cold)

    Is removing the oil in the tube needed?

    Siphon it out from the dipstick tube as you would a normal oil change.
