Ben, nice job. When you say "rotor wear" what are you basing that on? Is it the rotors that wear, or the housing, as you also state, or both? I don't have my BGB in front of me now, but it mentions measureing something else (clutch, shim?) for wear.
Great job on the teardown, Ben! The only other time i'd seen what the inside of a roots-type supercharger looks like is from the diagram pages of an old Car and Driver magazine featuring the '88 sc mr2.
Question: For a sc that's majorly losing sc oil to the tune of Full line to Empty in about 14 days, where would the fluid be escaping from? What would your opinions be wrt rebuilding or replacing the sc? I doubt if this is something I can do myself.
I don't mean to hijack this thread.... anybody with ideas to my question, i'd like to hear from you and appreciate your input. Thanks in advance! http://www.mr2oc.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=596790#post596790
Kootch27, there is an "O-ring" type seal in the oil tank cavity (gear case cover). It's my understanding that the SC can leak from this seal wearing out. It can be ordered separtely and replaced. I suppose it could also be losing oil through the bearing seals and going out of the supercharger to the intake system?
kbox, what's your website? I'd like to check out the 4agze rebuild kit you have there.
Ben, thanks for your input. I highly appreciate it! After some research on 'ticking sound' + exh manifold leak, I think that's what's going on. I will find out for sure this weekend when i remove the heat shields and inspect the exh mani & gasket for cracks.
