    Exclamation Supercharger Rebuild Question????

    G'day there,
    Just a quick question I have an 05 RXT with 55 hrs with the only mod is a wedge kit. Fro reading this forum I had to do something about my s/c. I took it to the local dealer hoping to just get the metal washers installed. The mechanic phoned and said the gearing and shaft had worn because of slipping and that the wear created an uneven wear (he called it a "bum") in the gear. I ended up getting the whole 06-07 s/c upgrade kit installed.

    My question is this enough to prevent any problems? ALso the metal washers i have are for an 05 RXT and won't fit the new s/c shaft etc that i have now. Should i still install metal washers or are the ones in the upgrade kit sufficient.

    Any help is appreciated

    Robbo

    Hi Robbo, welcome to the forum. The 06 spec rebuild kit comes with ceramic washers. Do yourself a favor and get the metal ones. It will save you from a lot of grief in the future.

    These are the ones you want

    Thanks for the help guys, just one more question would that new upgrade kit have new bearings included? Or should I think about getting new bearings in when the dealer is putting in the metal washers?

    Also, I am from Australia, how long would it tkae for parts to be delivered if i bought off the online store?
