13 rxpx 260new motor
thanks for ur help , and info on last post , turned out that the intercooler was leaking and had got water in the motor ,, it caused engine damage because and corrosion on valves , brp warranty a new create motor
,, just running in now , feels really nice , just wondered , someone told me to re build the supercharger as well , it has now new motor , intercooler , throttle body , mounts ,, but original supercharger ,,with35 hrs on it , when the ic let go , could it have damaged the charger , or do u think it should be fine , being , that the water would only hit the blades , or fan ,,, what do u guys recon ,, rebuild on first 10hrs service , or leave it for a while longer??

Your IC is down stream from the SC so very little to no chance of water damaging it. On my PX and TX, I found that the slip needed to be reset after about 20 hrs. As far as a rebuild, you should be good till around 100 hrs.

If it was mine I would definitely pull the SC and reset the slip and do a thorough inspection. If you feel any roughness while spinning the bearings it needs a complete rebuild. If you don't do this it will drive you nuts not knowing!

While it is true the IC is downstream from SC, if enough water gets into motor (or long enough), it will find its way into the oil...then into the SC bearings = premature SC failure.
Since everything else is new again, I would suggest changing the two bearings in the SC.
Was the oil milky?
Was this ridden in salt water?

no the oil was not milky , but there was enough engine damage to warranty a new motor ,,, maybe re do the bearings,, I'm not sure , if it's 1000 bucks for charger rebuild maybe I should just to make sure all is new ,, ???are there any signs to look for about the charger failing , or what happens when they stuff out ??

its not pretty, the metal from the SC can fall down in to the oil pump
