    Supercharger needle bearing install tips?

    Just pulled the supercharger out of my 04 RXP to replace the ceramic washers (it has 29 hours on it). I have the washers out, and I'm ready to install a set of Riva washers, but I'm not sure how to get the needle bearings reinstalled? Some type of grease to hold them in place?

    Grease works or put the gear on and slide the needles in-place.

    Tape - place needles 1/2 way on a piece of tape (narrow) - wrap tape around shaft - slide gear on to hold needles - remove tape - cleaner than grease.

    Make sure you have the first clutch washer on first

    Have a catch rag underneath - when done - go have a beer

    +1. Just put the gear on, and slide each of the needles back in place.
