    Supercharger failure?

    I just pulled the SC on my friends GTX LTD to install jerry's washers. The ceramic ones did not break yet (thank god!) but there looks like a small piece missing out of the SC impeller. It is missing from on the bottom of one of the fins. I know I need to change the impeller now but what I want to know is where is little piece could have gone (into the motor?) and if I should even worrk about it. I will get pics tomorrow night when I go to pick up the sc from his house.

    You don't think is a balancing spot, do you?

    is it a perfectly shaped half circle taken out of the edge? If so its just a balancing cut out.

    If a piece of the impeller does break off the intercooler will catch it.

    it's not perfectly shaped but it is a half circle. I will post a pic tomorrow just to be sure. Also going to post a pic of the front of those 4 or 5 little discs in front of the washers. They look to be a little pressed in. I don't know if they should be like that.

    Those are bellville washers. They are supposed to be concave looking.

    O.K here are the pics of the SC wheel. You can see exactly what I am talking about towards the top. Sorry about the quality. I took these with my phone.
