Question Q: Series VI Supercharger Rebuild? - 2008 Racecraft

Hello,

I have a 2008 Racecraft with 32,000 miles on it. I have had it for 10 years and have put 3,000 miles on it since I have owned it. I have been told I need a new supercharger on it and when I asked how they know it, I was told they could determine by the sound the engines makes at idle. Does anyone know if that makes sense? Do you know how to test for such a problem. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,

Racecraft Rod

Is there chatter or metal-on-metal noise?

Check the supercharger oil for metal particles?

Are you in the USA?

Dave,
Thanks for your reply. There may be a little bit of a rattle, but not much, if at all. Good idea to check the oil for metal fragments. And yes, I live in Meridian, Idaho. BTW, do you know if I would get a check engine light if there was a problem?

Rod

Pull the belt off and check the two idler pulleys and tensioner pulley for bad bearings.
