    Supercharger tools

    What tool kits are you guys using to work on your superchargers. I have seen the SBT and PWC performance parts kits online, and then the really expensive R&D, Riva, and Seadoo OEM kits. My first go around I am going to send it to Jerry to have the supercharger rebuilt, but I am going to need a tool kit for checking slip after ~25 hours seeing I am not going to send it off to him every 25 hours to check slip.

    Isn't checking slip simply a matter of locking the motor and using a torque wrench on the shaft nut?

    See idk, this is my first boat with the 4tec. Everything I saw said to remove the SC and mount it to the plate in a vise. Just want to do it right the first time. Just left Lowes to get the one tool I didn't have to remove it

    So now that I have it removed, I will let y'all look at it and tell me if it still has ceramic washers or has been upgraded to the steels

    Look like steel to me. My ceramics were green.

    But then again, what do I know?

    Difficult to say as the new steel washers are grey too, but my gut reaction is they are ceramic. Dont matter much either way as they are bothe therre and you are doing the right thing and getting it re-built!!

    As for tools, i brought the seadoo plate, the riva shaft tool and the RnD gear tool, IMO these are the best pick of what is availible, sure the RnD plate is nice but it only needs to do the job which the seadoo one does pefectly. Rivas shaft tool is very well made and lasts!! Unlike the seadoo one!! And RnDs gear tool goes right round the gear so les chance of causing damage or slipping.... Again the seadoo tool sucks!!!
