Be warned that a new seal may leak for a short period of time at the input shaft until it 'breaks in'.
Very good point. That'* how I've had transmission seals done in the past. They'll be doing the pressing for me (I don't have the seal installation kit), so I'll ask them to do that.

Is there a gasket that goes between the rotor body and nose drive assembly? My 92 didn't and I'm just curious if there should be one? I'm ready to reassemble. Seems that there should be one there or else the oil would leak out...right?

That'* what the red goop (gasket maker) is for.

None came with any of the gaskets. Would red RTV work for this? Red is high temp, right? Does the nose drive really get that hot that I would need the red?

You have to buy it seperately. The part number is listed in several places here. Don't use RTV. I don't know how well it seals against that very acidic oil. I personally wouldn't trust it, particularly on the M62 which is much harder to remove and fix later, and has a much lower oil volume to begin with. That'* a risk I wouldn't take on.


See the little red tube? They make it larger, too. I have the big one, as I do this alot on 4 different superchargers that I have. The small one is perfect for a one-time use. I also use it between the rotor casing and gearhousing lightly to prevent boost leaks.

This is the MAXIMUM amount to use. This is a pic of my first rebuild 3 years ago.

Got her all put back together. Runs like a champ. My loopy idle has gone away, too! I'm sure it was a vacuum leak from the really old gaskets.

Anywho.... How much supercharger oil should I have added? I put in one bottle. It didn't ooze out of the filler, is it suppose to?

One bottle should fill it to the base of the threads. It might take a bit more in a week as it fully fills the bearings in the nosedrive.

M90'* take two.
