Sorry I donít remember seeing the notification you responded. Weíre totally good! My point was this, not that anyone couldnít be savvy enough to tear these simple machines down, but that if you make a wrong move, it damages the supercharger. I support guys working on their cars, anyone who has called me knows that, but I will also suggest when not too. Had you sent it to us, your drive wouldnít have been damaged. Sometimes we know that damage is unrepairable because we have to tell the people, itís never a fun day to tell someone their Supercharger is trash. This is why we acquire as many pets as possible so we limit the amount of Saleenís we canít help get back on the road, and make a living doing so. I think we care about this community more than most and our actions show that.

Itís been a year, I hope all is still well with you!!

The drive gears on the rotor pack assembly were smoked from fluid loss (failed sealant) in the snout and had excessive lash causing the rattling/clash noise from the blower. The gears should have virtually no lash back and forth. They are constant mesh.

Huuuge thank you to Tony (Aussie-Parnelli) for helping me and locating a rotor pack assembly for me. I cant say enough about what he did to help and it is why these forums are here. For info and help from fellow enthusiasts. We are all family and should help eachother!

Jason, I'm sorry if I offended in any way with my posts. I realize I dont have thousands invested in specialy tools and jigs etc but I do have very good mechanical experience as a technician and felt I could do the work myself if I could get the parts and info. In no way was I telling anyone to copy my methods or was saying I was an expert or anything like that. I was just documenting my experience so my fellow enthusiasts could have some info on these unicorn blowers. Right or wrong I assumed the risk and knew it was on me. I'm not telling anyone to do it how I did it. I appreciate you, your company and all your help and hope to stay on good terms with you as I was in the past.

Long story short I'm back and the car runs great!!
