Default M62 Supercharger Rebuild w/Pictures & Part #*

Did the Supercharger on my 93 Bonnie today, everything went smooooooth.. I want to thank everbody for their input and the Tech notes were a lot of help too. This turned out to be a fairly easy project, I've done harder carbs that this. I took a lot of pictures and made some notes to help anyone else who wants to do this fun project.

My bonnie runs so much quieter now I keep thinking it stalled.

I put it up on my cardoman page here is the link:

QUESTION?
Do you mind if I take your notes & pics & upload them to my Forum? Or better yet you can do it too. Just place your post here > http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/fo...forum.php?f=16
& I'll add the pics in as well from your car domain site (In other words, I'll add the pics to my site too). I feel this type of Info is exactly what my Bonneville Informational Archive needs.

Looks good, Rat

Hope it will help someone out, this is a very intimidating project and because of that the local dealers charge BIG $$$$$$. It was really easy if you take your time and don't get in a big damn hurry. If you have a different year the steps may change some.

Only things I would change is: leave the TB connected unless you need to clean or work on it. Disconnecting the battery was a waste of time all it did was screw up my clock and my radio stations, I'd leave it hooked up next time. and you only need to remove a couple of quarts of antifreeze, don't drain the whole thing.

keep us posted in the long-term on your use of that sealant. Eaton, Magnusson and GM all spec the red gasket maker in the sticky post at the top of this forum. I'm curious to see how your stuff does. I don't expect it would ever cause problems between the gear housing and rotor casing, but I don't know whether the chemical composition of the SC oil will have an effect on the sealant between the gear housing and nosedrive.

Ken, can you post part numbers from your quest in the sticky post in this forum? Including your sealant (if it'* a viable option, we should list it). Did you do bearings and seals?

The way the SC goes together, don't think even GM used sealer in the first place. I just wanted a little extra. I put about 60 miles on it so far and no leaks. I intend to watch it close for a while, I also wondered about it.
GM recommended Loctite 512, I couldn't find any and my dealer wanted to rape me for a tiny tube. So I went with the RTM

Wren, my SC was really clean and tight, I checked the bearings with a dial indicator (I didn't go into that most people don't have one) so I just cleaned/lubed it up and replaced the coupler which was really sloppy. All I really wanted to do was stop that damn noise, and I did that it runs so quiet now I have to keep checking the tach to see if it is really running. This was just basically a coupler change.

I didnt use the red gasket maker either. I used RTV gasket builder. She'* held up for like 1000 miles no problem.
