    Oil in supercharger inlet

    Fresh rebuilt supercharger(viton seal), about 6 hours on it after rebuild, took the kanaflex off today and noticed a tiny puddle of oil in the supercharger inlet. Would this be something to worry about? I'm running a catch can.

    I've seen some early failures of one version. JP and I use a different looking one then the ones that failed. I'll find both and take a picture because there is an obvious difference in appearance.

    If not installed correctly both will leak as Sno says.

    I'm sure I installed it straight, could not see any misalignment when I got it all the way in, so I should replace then, crap

    One thing i noticed tho, the seal I got did only have one sealing lip, but the picture of the viton seal in the store here seems to have 2 sealing lips.

    Got response from Jerry, the viton has only one sealing lip.

    2 lips make such a nice seal. 1 lip and it's just a half ass attempt.
