Supercharger Grease Question
I will be doing my first supercharger rebuild this winter and have read through the instructions that come with the oem kit.
What is the purpose of the Isoflex grease and is it really required ? From my understanding the grease is there to hold the needle bearings in place during assembly then it will get washed away once the charger gets oil flow.

If you have a late model shaft you can push oil up through the centre hole with a oil can to lube the clutches etc .... just before you fit it to yr ski ....

I would use a Vaseline for assembly and lube until the new bearings get oil pressure to oil them. Or use engine assembly lube to protect on first start up either will be good and mix with engine oil with out a problem.
