I'm sure it's on here somewhere but if the supercharger unit needs fluid is there a safe substitute if none is available?

For the 95s,we have a choice of oils if you go by the FSM.That choice either to use the GM S/C oil or a 50/50 mix of 5W30 & Lucas oil stabilizer.
I have been using the Mix for quite some time and am happy to report that my nose thanks me.

I've been using Ester 100 compressor oil and it seems happy.

Summit racing has GM supercharger oil, $9 per bottle plus shipping. Got mine yesterday in preparation for doing the "rattling coupler" repair.

Do you guys know how many bottles of GM S/C oil you need to get to properly fill the supercharger?

2 bottles, 4 oz. each, so a total of 8 fluid ounces.

"GM Supercharger Oil" is for Series II superchargers, not Series I.

I think in a pinch a 95 can also use S/C oil. ?

Why not? It's an Eaton Supercharger.

I don't know. All I know is GM shows different oils in the book. I don't know what's in "GM Supercharger Oil", other than they made it smell like puke wink

Maybe the bearings have different clearances. Maybe the 'climbing' requirements are different. I know they use the same coupler but other than that I don't know if the internals and bearings of the M90 are different from the M62.

Could you use it in a pinch? I guess, as long as it's not dry. But if I were changing it I would try to find what they say to put in it.

Maybe somebody can call Eaton and find out why the specified which oils.
