^^This sounds really similar to what I just began experiencing last night. I'm afraid to drive it in that condition. Hope to get some further insight into it.

Very nice! Thanks for the info. I need to do this to mine.. :/ Anyone know what could be causing an odd sound from my S/C? When I am accelerating it sounds and feels great, has a nice whine to it, but when I am just cruising at a constant speed and not pushing it, it makes a kind of pulsing noise? Like maybe a bearing is going out? Ill try and get a video of it so you can hear the sound.

Sorry was camping Can you post a video of this sound? Does it only happen when driving or when you rev it up to? Have you ever replaced your clutch by chance?

supercharger

I have done a lot of research on this subject and there is not a whole lot out there, so I figured I would share my experience. First off this whole procedure would be a lot easier with a big press but I didn't have one so this is what I used.

I ordered new nose seal, couplier, bearings, gasket maker and super charger oil from:
http://rollingperformance.com/index.htm

First off I removed the SC from the truck and set it on the work bench.

Remove the drain plug on the front of the unit next to the pulley, with an allen wrench.


Tip forward and drain oil out, as you can see mine is dark in color and smelled terrible. Guessing it really needed changed


Next loosen the bolts around the housing.


I loosened all the bolts about an inch, then I pried the nose drive from the housing and tipped it over onto a rag to remove the last of the oil.


Then remove the rest of the bolts and remove the nose drive.



Now on to removing the rotor assy from the housing by prying on the three different notches.




Once the rotor assy is removed you can see the two rear bearings.



This next process would be a lot easier with a press. I improvised and found the end of my 1/2 inch extension was the same OD than the bearing. So I then beat them out of the rear.


I froze the rear bearings and used the back of a socket to beat the bearings back in. If you have never done anything like this before make sure that you are going in straight.



Apply gasket maker, do not use this much it was overkill and it got all over the place. All you need is a small bead around the inner lip. Then put the rotor assy back in. And install the new coupler.




Now the nose assy. I used a punch, hammer, and a couple pieces of wood to remove the nose shaft.



Remove the clip holding the seal in and then flip the housing over and I used a 1/2 inch ext and a socket to remove the outer bearing and seal.



After bearing and seal are removed, remove spring from the shaft assy and put the shaft back in the housing place on wood again and with punch beat the shaft thru the bearing and couplier piece ( Did not take a picture of this process) Would be a lot easier to take it to a shop and get it pressed off and new one pressed on.

Install new front bearing. And reinstall the nose shaft and bearings.


Apply gasket maker and put nose assy back on. Loc-tight bolts and tighten, then fill with 4 oz super charger oil and put drain plug back in and reinstall on the truck.

Hope this helps anyone looking to do a full rebuild, and feel free to contact me with questions.

P.S. Sorry about the spelling

thanks for the write-up! just used this to rebuild my new (used) supercharger.

on the step you didn't get a picture of, i used a 3-jaw gear puller to remove the second bearing and couple from the nose drive shaft. worked quite well.

I remember sometime ago finding a sales page that sells "upgraded" ceramic bearings- can't find it now. Anyone have experience with these "upgraded" bearings? Thinking I'll go past the 2.1 pulley and go 2.0 if the bearings are good for it. Been rocking E85 and so now intake air temps and all that jazz just doesn't matter- more boost, more power, no need to retard timing or none of that.

Maybe its a bad sign rolling performance used to have them, now they don't?

Ceramic bearings were suppose to be the next big thing but they seemed to always break at least in motocross.

You need either a seventh injector or bigger injectors, check out URD.com

Read a lot about the whole ceramic bearing thing and I decided to not do it, its not worth the price and the SC is only capable of so much PSI, you are not going to gain anything (power wise) with switching.

if you have a 2nd gen (black) supercharger, you can use a syringe with some tubing to suction out the oil in the nose drive and then inject the new oil in. takes 4 oz.
