In fact, 1/2" is just about the spacing between the steel pins if the coupler weren't even there. I would stop driving the car immediately.
The motor is out of the car. Because the car is off to the junk yard. Starting to work on the motor so it will be ready to drop in the cutlass for next summer. Should I rebuild the supercharger or just put a new coupler and Bearing kit in it?
Rebuilding the SC IS the bearings and coupler. 4 bearings (you don't want to tackle the remaining 2) and the coupler.
Thanks for all the info and web site on the supercharger this is a big help for me

Be warned though, with that much slop, or a damaged/missing coupler, you could have already damaged the supercharger beyond rebuild/repair. Pull it apart to find out.

You will need a drill, tap, grease gun, long greease fitting, and a hydraulic press.

That'* just for the needle bearings. The nosedrive is a bit more complicated, as one bearing will try to come out as you press the next in. There are many topics in this section of the forum where I describe the process.

If you've never done it before, I suggest
