    supercharger check

    How much play should you feel on the supercharger. I pulled the hose off and felt inside and noticed very slight movement. Is this the quick way to check and what are you suppose to notice if something wrong.

    WHat are you checking for??SC Slip??If so then the only real way to check for it would be to pull the SC and put a wrench on it...You will feel some slight play,Thats the play between the gears..BUT it will be Very minimal

    If it spins easily, that's bad. A little is normal. Don't forget that there is mechanical advantage of around 5:1 between the SC and flywheel. When you spin the SC, you may be rotating the crankshaft slightly. The most noticable problem is loss of rpms/speed when the clutches are wearing out... Ron
