Default About my supercharger

I apoligize if this in the wrong place but I needed to know this immediatly because this problem I have won't go away. Its this ticking noise I get when I accelerate hard. I mentioned this in the summer months and got a couple of solutions but never was able to get the product. More so was scepticle because i am not formiliar with totolene. I think this ticking noise mioght be coming from the supercharger itself. If so is this a sign of low or no oil? I hope its this simple and all I have to do is get the oil and put it in.

Back when I wasn't working and the gas prices were outraggous I used 89 a couple of times maybe 4 or 5. I don't no more now though. THe soumd is like ticking when I give like -5 or more boost( Only example I can give for now) and I hope its not too late to do something about it now that i have some money. I just need to know what tool do I need to check the sc.

at the back of the nose cone on the SC, there is a plug that takes an allen wrench to remove it. take it out and look in the hole. i fill mine just under the treads of it. and it takes a special GM SC oil.

I have a set but when I tried it, its a shape where the wrench has to have a cut to fit on the screw. I thought it need a special allen wrench.

Nuthin' special about it. Just a regular ol' hex wrench. Oil should be to the bottom of the threaded hole.

I never got the ticking noise before, until I used the lower octane gas, unless it was just time to change the sc oil. I HOPE. Will, are we speaking of the same screw on the top of the sc on the right side when you take the smaller cover off?
