Awhile ago I ate a bolt that vibrated off the air cleaner and worked its way down into the vanes of the SC, I pulled it apart and cleaned up the burrs and tried to (fix it) the SC works but I feel that there is a balance problem because of the material that i removed from the vanes. Having a problem getting a place to repair and balance the old one,. Just talked to Moss Motors and the blower is no longer available........... Any ideas or does any body have one that they no longer want?

I believe that the supercharger you are talking about was made by Eaton. I have a similar one on my Miata. They came in different sizes according to the volume they pumped. I have an M42 size (for my 1.6 liter engine). Most likely you have an M62 which was used for 2-2.5 liter engines. The interior parts are most likely the same in a given series. See if you can find any info on exactly which model you have and maybe you can source parts that way.

I can't offer any help with your SC but I would love to know how much of a difference it made when you first installed it new. Was the increase in power really amazing?

The supercharger really made a difference in power! I went a little overboard on the engine, 89mm pistons, nice cam, lightened flywheel, ported and polished head, headers and just recently a good exhaust system. With the 5 speed HVDA transmission it really moves. Yes I do think it was worth the extra money. The old mopar guys at car shows really are impressed. Even just driving normal the response is great. Moss Motors doesn’t sell the system anymore. i have seen the Judson supercharger system on eBay.

Wow what a great deal on everything! I would take that supercharger in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I am already committed to having mine rebuilt, it’s going to cost more to have it fixed than what he wants for the complete set up. I feel bad that for whatever reason the gentleman needs to sell his stash of parts.

Well talked to the repair shop on the supercharger shop yesterday and it is going to be another 8 weeks!!!!!!
The part they need ( rotor pack)no longer available . it took them 6 weeks to tell me that. I found a repair shop on the east coast that will repair the rotor pack for $1600 , but again 8 weeks turn around. Then assembly so not much driving the TR3 this summer. I am glad we have the TR250.

well I finally got the supercharger back. Installed it today. All I need is some vacuum line tee and the valve cover on . To anyone that has a moss motor ’s supercharger be sure to use thread lock on the air cleaner bolt. Lesson learned for $2700!
