Default epoxy coating on supercharger

Hello Everyone and Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Now Merry Christmas

My question is will the epoxy coating on a M62 supercharge be damaged in anyway by cleaning solvents, such as Brake clean or Carburator cleaners and if not what is the best cleaning solvent to clean the bottom of the supercharger without damaging the epoxy coating on the rotors.

Thanks

Carb and brake cleaners are 2 harsh for that. You don't need to clean the rotors as the carbon actually increases effiecency a little bit. But if you want to castrol superclean is a good choice.

You don't have epoxy coating on your rotors, bigbad. That started in 1994 with the Gen3 M62. You have a Gen2.

Don't use ANYTHING on the rotors unless you're planning on replacing your needle bearings. Anything you spray in there will eat away at the grease in the needle bearings.
