    Supercharger ?

    Question I just rebuilt my Supercharger with the Green Charger Impeller and I was wondering how Hard should it be to rotate the Impeller shaft? I have the Slipage needed but I dont think It should be that hard to turn.

    Did you forget the little washer in the middle?
    It doesn't just free wheel. How hard is it to turn?

    should be easy to spin with 1 finger as above there is a washer between the 2 bearings that can cause problems if left out. Any roughness or noise when turning?

    You can almost look at it and it will spin.

    I put the Small washer in between the shaft and the bearing but it's only hard to spin when the impeller is toqured to 22 FT lbs like is says in the shop manual

    Sounds like the bearing nearest the gear is going tight when you tighten the impellor nut,did you heat the housing when fitting the shaft. Ive had a couple in the past go tight alittle heat did the trick
