Default Coupler Change

Just want to confirm my shopping list is complete for the coupler change:

2 8oz bottles of Supercharger Goo / Smelliest crap on Earth
1 Supercharger coupler
1 Supercharger gasket
1 tube gm gasket maker
1 pair supercharger o-ring seals


Also, I'm going to change the fuel injector o-rings while I'm there. Anyone have a PN for that by any chance?

You only NEED one bottle but buy two.
I have the pn for the o-ring kit at home. Have to wait for it. Otherwise, you got the whole list.

Why not just go onto Advances site and get the o ring numbers?

On that upper gasket set.. it should come with the two o rings for the SC cooling passages. And you forgot throttle body gasket.

Correct. The nosedrive on the M90 is longer to reach the outer belt path. M62 is short and is the inner belt.

Oil fills the snout all the way to the seal behind the pulley. That'* alot of volume.

Also, as a precautionary, dont use tooo much of the red crap, it will make the SC rotors feel as if they are binding up..it causes some concearn for me when I did mine, just might save you some grief.

Yeah, it'll squeeze through and get on the rotors, and into your engine...not good.

Even if it DID get in your engine, there wouldn't be any problems. I'll have pics available on my supercharger page soon for the proper amount.

You guys used WAY too much.

It'* a superthin amount that is meant to create a paper thin or thinner gasket between two machined surfaces.

Always use a little LESS on the rotor side. If you wanna goop it on, do the gooping on the side with the oil, away from the rotors.

This is the MAXIMUM amount to use on the nosedrive side. Use a bead HALF as wide on the rotor side.
