Press down on the pulley end. What kind of press? Rack/Pinion manual, or hydraulic? You'll need a hydraulic press if hammer and wood don't work.

^ I will give it another whirl tomarrow, I havent used the press yet but its a manual press. I just tried the hammer for one last time before I try the press out.

ohh, sorta off topic, are The ceramic bearings worth the extra $ ?

No, they're not. Normal bearings last over 100,000 miles.

If you have a manual press, forget it. You won't get it apart. If the hammer doesn't work, you need a hydraulic press.

I certainly hope none of those pieces made it into the gears. At this point, I'd be looking for a used eBay supercharger.

No, maybe not, but your rotor bearings are toast.

Those shavings are circulating in the same oil that lubricates the rotor bearings. Face reality with us here. Your SC is entirely toast. Don't even waste your time trying to rebuild just the nosedrive.
