    Pics of a major supercharger failure on RXP PLEASE READ!!!

    PWC came in with complaints about loss of power. We removed the blower and found that the blower housing, gear, and impeller were destroyed. The metal shavings from the impeller went into the motor, and the blower gear ended up in the lower part of the mag. oil filter housing. Once again, the blower gear was not on the shaft when we pulled the blower out. I just thought I would share with everyone. Anyone ever seen this type of blower failure?

    P.S. We'll have some more pics shortly.

    Had this ski or the supercarger been modified or was it all stock?
