Default Tech Tip: Powerdyne Supercharger - Bearing replacement

Today is my second time changing out the bearings in SC. It is easy and cheap. If anyone is having SC problems and have questions let me know. I only had to change 2 of the 4 bearings this time and they only cost $3.96 per bearing. "Save money, live better!"

Interesting, my Powerdyne has almost 170k miles on it and I'm willing to bet everything is original.

BTW, do you have pics of your XP8? Not sure if I've seen a "chestnut" colored one.

Saleen only made one chestnut Xp8. I'm the 2nd owner. Bob Muesegeus (soec VP) picked the color out when it was made. Liz Saleen later told me that it was the only one made in that color. It's a great car, still runs great with 180k. It's are everyday driver. I'll add pic when I get to a computer.

Ah, I have seen pics of that truck actually on explorerx.com There's a dedicated forum there for XP8 and XP6's. They were posted like 6 years ago. Very unique and looks to be in great shape

Great looking truck! I really like the way that color looks when it hits the sun. Does this truck gave the Alcon Brakes installed?

Love the Chestnut - i have a '99 Eddie Bauer in Chestnut/ tan.

Do you have a write up for changing the bearings? I don't need it yet, but it would be nice to have the information for when the time comes.

Thanks
