I had to rebuild my supercharger snout...

I put everything back together and I couldn't figure out my irradic idle. After chasing every vacuum line with carb cleaner, I decided to pull the supercharger off again. What I found was an intake manifold full of coolant. Sorry no pics. I cleaned that up and re-sealed my coolant passage block offs and put it all back together. I pressure tested my coolant system and all is well. After work I took it for spirited romp and it felt like my belts wer slipping, great, I goosed the gas again and realized it was just the tires lack of traction.

Cool. Always wondered what our */C looked like inside. Just wasn't ambitious enough to take apart the one I have laying around lol

I stuck a smaller diameter bolt in the threads on the snout and knocked it out with a hammer, then I had to take the shaft to a bearing shop and get the end and bearing pressed off. It took them about fifteen minutes
