    water in supercharger

    My ski good flooded through intake. I finally took it all apart, my supercharger had water in it. But it was not running at the time. Anything i should replace while its off? i am newbie when it comes to superchargers. 60 hours on the ski now. Should i replace the washers now? I have the Riva stage 2 kit installed, which washers do i need? any bearings inside?

ID:	287442 this is what it looks like now. should i just leave it alone, or polish it?

    I bought this ski already with upgrades. how do i know what is done to supercharger? if it has any upgrades? i see riva washers on it, they said the impeller was replaced with riva one. how do i really know?

    Full supercharger rebuild kit IMO plus fully clean all the surfaces. Best thing would be send it to Jerry for him to do and you know it's 100% right.

    You may find you have other issues if you ski was flooded. How long was it flooded for, salt or fresh water, has it been run since??? All this will help us help you if you get my drift...

    it was not really flooded. Water got through the air intake. it wasnt underwater. supercharger spins fine. just the pitting on it. if inside everything is clean. i am thinking just to replace bearing. how can i polish the neck that has the damage? or should i get new housing?

    Was it salt or fresh water.
    Either way you need to remove the spark plugs and spin it over.
    Check the oil and change it if there is water in it.
    Once you change the oil take it out and run it 30-60 min to evaporate any water trapped inside the motor.
    If your storing your ski for the winter make sure to fog the motor.
    Time is of the essence. If you wait and have water in your motor then it could ruin it.

    fresh water. i took the whole engine apart. i am putting new rings etc.. supercharger seems fine just abit of oxidation, which i cleaned most of it off with a polish. i am going to replace the bearing inside just to be sure.
