    Need some advice

    Ok guys,
    Finally got my RXP to run and handel the way I wanted it to. Short end of the story is my supercharger failed. Not sure how bad it failed but I'm sure it is gone. I have called 2 dealers one said just change the oil one said pull the rear cover and clean it out. It is an X charger. So what would you guys recomend?

    Thanks
    Corey

    Pull the SC to see the extent of the damage first

    Wait a second....If it failed and its an X-Charger you dont have to go cleaning anything unless the new metal washer broke into peices and you dont know where they are.

    If your supercharger failed more than likely you will find the pieces at the front oil scavenger pump screen. If you do you are good to go. Remove the debris, inspect the front oil pump and install a new set of Riva 08 metal washers.

    If you don't find all the missing washers in the front screen you will need to remove the PTO.

    Also, remove the valve cover and roll the engine over slowly and inspect every link of the timing chain. Sometimes the washer dropping down can lodge between the crank gear and the chain and damage it.

    Pulled it last night...One of the washers is gone!!! Found some of the washer in the front cover. Going to pull the motor and clean it out just to be safe. Nothing found in the valves.

    Is it safe to say the new washers were not heat cycled - broke in properly
