    Grease for Supercharger reinstall

    Hello!
    At the risk of sounding like an idiot...
    I recent got my supercharger back from its rebuild (Thanks Jerry) and while i was reinstalling it, i put a good amount of grease all over the drive gear and shaft, after everything was installed, i noticed that the grease i used was actually wheel bearing grease, do you guys think that will be a problem?

    You dont and shouldnt put grease on anything when re-installing the SCer..It is lubed by means of engine oil..The only thing you should need to worry about greasing is the 2 rubber O rings that seal the SC to the block...I would take it back out and try to get as much grease off the SCer as possible..

    no chance it'll just melt into the oil?

    Dont know..Gotta remember Wheel bearing grease is made to stand up to high temps..I doubt the temps of the engine will melt it....

    Have you started the engine yet??IF not then pull the SCer and get as much off as you can..

    What do you use to grease the o rings? I thought just a little finger dab of engine oil on the o rings would be good but this sounds like you guys use an actual grease.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    i used the smallest amount of...... yes wheel bearing grease on the o-rings long before i read this thread on ONLY the o-rings. no problems! i'm sure there is a better alternative though!

    I bought a tube of Sea Doos sythentic grease they sell, andd use it where ever parts need to slide together. Just a light smear is all you need, have been doing this since 04 without any problems yet........(knocking on wood)
