120 hours on ski (2005 RXT) without a rebuild of supercharger. Lost hp this weekend - speed topped out at 40mph). Started researching and discovered the SC only last about 100 hours. Any chance the SC stops working without putting a bunch of metal in the engine?
Yes, it’s possible. Pull it and take a picture of the back of the assembly and I’ll let you know what’s up
I pulled the supercharger. As an FYI, I ran into an issue with the top mount bolt. I stripped it. I used a dremel multi-max mm30, with a carbide bit, to cut the bolt head. No problem. Took about 2 minutes.
Please see attached pics and let me know your thoughts.
So hate the be the barer of bad news, but looks like ceramic washers and one is missing.

Thanks, Joe. Appreciate the follow up.
