Default Supercharger Coupler Replacement

When i replace my supercharger coupler, do i have to replace anything else. I've heard of some peeps doing with without have to replace gaskets or anything. Is this a good idea. And if not do i have to take the whole supercharger off to get to the gasket.

You can take the nose cone off without taking the main body off of the car. I did the later. You'll need some Silicone gasket maker for the nose cone seal. You just have to make sure to use rags so you dont get oil all over the place. It'* a pretty easy routine.

You may want to take out the rotor assebley too that is mounted on the plate inbetween the nose cone and the main body and put a new gasket on that. Just make sure no old gasket material goes into the engine.
