Today finaly opened 1st time a supercharger.
still not all parts have not arrived. but started to change those what i had.
so i opened the SC.
seems it's not that easy as i thoght. but whit some modedd tools i got it open whitout taking to many parts off.


and...OMG!
well i had never opened a SC befor....and the ex owner...the RUSSIAN guy.
he told me that he buted a 'new' SC on it. the only new thing was the SC oil what was in it. did not smell as bad as ppl tell. belive or not but..that guy had repeared the coaplar!...well i think he toght he did. he had replaced some metal pipes or somethign in the holes! no wonder that the SC mad a very bad sound.
Spoiler:
 
Then Pressure whashed it whit 120C hot water and oil remover.
air dryed it looks good again. after that cone for a ride. seems ignission wires or somethings are still wet cos did the same thing what it did when had bad wires. well when its dry im sure everything will be fine.
anyways after coplar change the engine was not that noisy anymore.
have do thank Rick for buyign an shiping the coplar, oils and exterjor temperature sencor. smile

hope the other pullys and outer tierods arrive soon.
