Default Supercharger greasing

I'm about to replace the coupling and wondered if the other end of the rotors needed greasing as long as it is apart. If so, what kind of grease is recommended?

no you will only pull the nose drive off to do the coupler....this will not remove the rotors of the supercharger

coupler
a spray bottle to remove the old fluid out of the Supercharger
2 bottles of GM SC oil
and some red GM gasket maker

and you will be all set

dont forget about the bolt that goes straight down in to the LIM when removing the nose drive

OK. Luckily, I decided that since I'm in the middle of doing the LIM gaskets, it would be far easier to do the coupler now with the supercharger off rather than having to take off so much stuff for access later on.

We carry the correct grease if you ever need it.

The coupler is all you should need, the grease is good for the life of the bearing unless you take the whole sc apart and contaminate the bearing.
