    supercharger slip??

    so i checked the slip on the rxtx at 80 hrs and was 9Nm. so i rebuilt the supercharger. after rebuild the slip was 19Nm.

    heres the interesting part,
    i check a brand new supercharger of a new rxtx and the slip was .... also 9Nm.
    ?????
    any thoughts?

    btw the rebuild charger hasnt been run yet. will it drop by much once it is run?

    do the stock new superchargers need to be rebuilt straight away if i was wanting to put a bigger impeller in it?

    cheers

    They usually wear in pretty quick and drop a couple of NM in the first 3 hrs use.

    If you are at only 9nm then i would advise installing a shim.

    No need to rebuild a supercharger when doing an impeller change.

    I think 13 nm is close to 10 ft lbs. Correct me if i'm wrong.
    update 1ft lb = 1.35582nm

    how do the check the slip on the supercharger? With the blower in the ski or on the bench? What should the slip be on a rebuilt supercharger?

    It's gotta be out on the bench... takes special tools & vice mounting plate... check out the on-line store for the SC rebuild tools.

    You will also need a $300 torque wrench
