If your truck is running good when you install the SC you will only loose a mile per gallon, I just did a very complete tune up and I am running average 19mpg, I'm running 3 inch lift and 33x12.50's

You shouldnt drop at all but improve your milage provided you can keep your foot out of the skinny pedal

Install new front bearing. And reinstall the nose shaft and bearings.
Thanks for the write up! This will definitely help out with my rebuild I'm going to do. I had a question though. The above bold part is where I'm a bit confused. So you put the shaft back into the housing and what bearing are you beating the shaft through? The front bearing or the rear bearing closer to the back end of the shaft?

I don't have access to a press and may go the same route as you with a punch. Thanks!

Can the rear needle bearings be replaced without removing the charger from the engine? I was thinking maybe shove a rag in the intake just in case the bearings are free.

Also what about the needle bearings in the front of the rotors near the gears. Did you replace those too or did you just grease them more and decide to not change those?

I honestly cant see how and or it would be so much hassle and risk, Its just not that hard to remove it and do it all on the bench. usually the front bearing wear first so "I" would either do the fronts only or all at once.

Are the front and rear bearings holding the rotors the same?

Exclamation New Tacoma owner, s/c needs rebuild

Hey All,
Just bought a '99 Tacoma with 216,000 miles on it, and it sounds like the supercharger needs a rebuild bad. I have been told by two of my mechanic buds that I probably shouldn't drive it until I rebuild it. After reading through this forum, I believe that I have the first gen charger (it is silver, and the part # on the sticker is 00602-17620-001). Wondering if the parts on rollingperformance will fit it, since the rebuild pictured was a second gen charger. Hoping it doesn't need more than an oil change/bearings/gaskets shown in the rebuild, but thinking it might. Is there any way to tell before I open it up? You can feel vibration if you rest your hand on top of the charger, not real bad but definitely there. Also making noise that sounds almost like a diesel. Not nearly as loud, but you can hear it in the cab if you're sitting still with all the accessories off. Please help! I need to get this thing driveable ASAP so I can sell my Corolla and be making only one car payment.

Any idea how long the supercharger has been on there?

Not sure if parts are interchangeable between first and second gen.

I can feel the rotors spinning in mine. It is not horrible bit noticeable. You should feel something as the way the rotors mesh together in this supercharger is not completely smooth at idle. You get kind of a rattle sound until you rev it. My understanding is that the rotors are "straight cut" and have a loose tolerance. I may be absolutely wrong but I read that somewhere.

It would be safe to assume it needs a rebuild if has been on there for more than a 100k miles.

3.4l TRD Supercharger rebuild

Any of you that have pulled your rotors found the Teflon coating worn?

I have 110k miles on mine. I about to pull it off one truck to put on another and plan to rebuild it first. I put a new nose cone on it 20k miles ago so I am gonna leave that alone. Plan on replacing the rear bearing, replacing the nose cone oil, and checking the rotors. Looked a couple of times at sending it off to get checked but was told the same thing as the OP, anywhere from $300 to $1200 if the rotors were worn. So wondering if any of you have actually seen significant wear on the rotors?

Thanks.

I am not sure how long the s/c has been installed. The dealer I got it from bought it at auction and there is no paperwork to go with it. I am going through the whole truck to be safe. S/C rebuild, flushing and changing all fluids, replacing timing belt, the whole shabang. I'm not taking any chances because this is going to be my daily driver for quite some time. The frame and body are completely rust free, which is unheard of where I live. I emailed the guys at rollingperformance this morning, I will post any useful info I get. Thanks for the info though, I feel a bit better about the noise level
