    Installing supercharger

    Can anyone give me some pointers or tips on installing my rebuilt supercharger? Will the gears
    automatically line up when I reinstall it?

    You may need to put your fingers onto the intake blades of the supercharger to rotate the blades / gears a little to get them to line up.

    Lube the O Ring seals that are on the outside of the supercharger body that seal against the PTO cover to help 'ease' them in without snagging.

    Make sure nothing is in the way of where the supercharger sits before you start to push it in. I have seen people use a worm gear on the PTO Driveshaft boot, and the worm gear drive bit was fouling against the body of the supercharger as it was being inserted. As the supercharger goes in, this area becomes 'blind' as the supercharges blocks your vision as to what is fouling it.

    NEVER PUT ANYTHING NEAR THE SUPERCHARGER INTAKE WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING - LIKE FINGERS!!!

    Do I need to worry about torque specs on the three bolts? Is any thread lock needed and if so what type?
