    Supercharger disassembly question

    Hi Guys...

    I have a quick question... I rebuilt my charger over the weekend... Hopefully I did a good job

    I want some advise for the next time... That bearing retaining cup that sits underneath the blades, with the 4 holes, that you remove with that special tool... (yes... now you all know what I'm referring to)...

    Is there an easy way to unbolt this thing... This part gave me A LOT of hassles (because of the lock tite)... Can one use an air impact tool to loosen this ?? How do you guys do it ?? I lost a lot of skin and blood trying to undo this retaining cup.... I don't have an impact driver... But would have tried one if I had one But I need to know If I should get one before the next SC service

    THANKS !

    I use an impact gun to remove this. I have modified my tool (4 pin socket) to accept a 1/2" drive impact

    The bolt hole pattern on the tool is 50mm and use 6mm dowel pins. 1/2 drive square in the center for ratchet extension.

    i use a little propane torch and apply heat around that nut on supercharger body, it will expand, burn up loctite and nut will come right off, works every time for me and not do any damage, it does not take much heat to release.

    Thanks... yes I also used a propane torch... but for me it didn't really seem to work... or maybe it did, cause I eventually got it off ???

    But ues... it was a mission of note....

    Heat gun will always work with a glue like compound. Just heat it very well.

    you guys need to remember,that housing is aluminum....You heat one specific area up to much it could be prone to warping.....And with the specs as tight as they are with the wheel and cover,last thing you want is to warp the housing ....Just saying....

    Exactly the reason why I did not feel comfortable to heat it tooo much...

    Will definitely get an impact wrench
