Default New supercharger is on for 1000km, leaking, squeeling

Well Im not sure were to start with this one, I just bought a new supercharger from Canadian Supercharger, all was well until the last week or so, Its been leaking around the joints were the nose cone joins the body, Now when I put the gas down its makes a high pitch whistle, what should I do, There is a lifetime warranty on it, So I guess Ill be making the call tommorw, This is just getting ridiculus, Is there anything I should look at in or around the area before making the conlcusion thats its the supercharger whistling, even though I have heard right from that point, Alternator maybe, But theres still fluid leaking

Take the SC belt off and run it for long enough to see if the whistle is still there.

regardless, Canadian Supercharger should not be shipping out chargers with leaky nosedrives. Can you see any of the red gasket maker squeezed out that goes between the nose drive and the rotor plate?

Theres no gasket maker anywhere coming, out before I even put it on i looked it over,thinking maybe is was something else sealing it, If I wipe off the joints, and go for a drive it seems to be pooling in one of the "craters" on top, I dont want to have to pull it off and replace again. this is getting bad, So if it wasnt sealed right it could be the whistle noise as well,

My 93 sse also gets that high pitched whistle when I have the pedal all the way to the floor on the freeway,never hear it on local roads,I was told it was due to a weak belt tensioner / bad pulley(ies).

The charger oil is pooling on top of the charger? That'* um.. odd. It'* a splash system and there shouldn't be any pressure to drive it out the top.

If there'* oil leaking out the top, the rotor seals are leaking boost pressure into the nosedrive.

Call CSC and deal with them. There'* not much we can do to help with warranty claims.

(moving to Forced Induction)


Brian will take care of you, but he can't until you call him. A SC swap is a very simple and easy job. It'* unfortunate, but sometimes it has to be done. Do as suggested in the meantime, and troubleshoot it without the belt.
