Hi Riviera Lovers,

Thanks for allowing me onto your site.
Have always loved these Riv’s and took the opportunity to purchase one. Just purchased a 1995 with 100k miles. Overall in good shape. The more I dig into the car, I am finding more issues, but not uncommon for a 26 year old vehicle.
First note, I am getting the bearing hum from the supercharger. Anyone have a favorite “rebuilder”?

The supercharger coupler makes a "marbles in a can" sound. If you are hearing a hum, it may be one of the hub bearings.

You might want to look at what ZZPerformance has for super chargers. There is a vendor on eBay for bearing kits and couplers, ‘darossillc’ I think. I bought my bearing kit and replacement coupler from him and installed them at 160 or 170 thousand miles, I kinda forget, but the quality was tops and I’ve no issues with the blower now, at 400 thou miles.

If you are staring at your car one day, with nothing else you prefer to do, consider getting some emery cloth or a small wire brush and disconnect and clean all the grounds you can find in the engine and passenger compartments. In general they are on the passenger side frame rail, the firewall, the driver and passenger side kick panels, and under the rear seat.

Welcome aboard!
