Firstly eyeing up where the supercharger is going to live. There’s not much option on it’s position. It either goes where it fits in the available space with the pulley lined up or it doesn’t go at all!
Having figured that out. On to fixing it in place.
A temporary ali spacer at the rear.
Steel spacer machined, threaded and welded on
Holes drilled and temporary spacers for mounting to the head
Spacers in to raise the SC away from the exhaust as much as possible. Lower support made.
Mock up of tensioner and idle pulley setup
Some scrap 10mm ali to make it out of
Hole popped out in the right place which is always nice 🙂
Belt on and AFM etc fitted to start the car and see it the charger turns. While I started the car I had my father in law stood by on ‘disaster watch’ just in case.
Supercharger in motion!
