So I changed my supercharger oil today. I used a meat injector syringe and a 1/8" vinyl fuel line for a lawn mower to suck out all the old oil. Man that stuff stinks.

Anyways, I noticed my supercharger took both bottles of new oil, minus a little tiny bit that spilled out when I turned the bottle upside down. I thought it was only supposed to take a bottle and 3/4 or something like that? I didn't see it come up to the bottom of the threads. Is this typical? Am I going to see any problems out of this? I haven't driven it yet, but I did start it and didn't notice anything spraying out anywhere or any strange noises.

Also, should the supercharger oil plug have an O-ring on it? Before I did the change, I've noticed a little oil weeping out around the plug. I bought an O-ring set from Autozone thinking maybe the old one had gone bad, but when I removed the plug, there was not one on there.

The oil level is suppose to be all the way to the top of the threads, so fill accordingly. After doing the supercharger coupler I used two and some of a third bottle of supercharger fluid. I wouldn't think there would be a problem with the level being lower than recommend but I wouldn't take any chances. Just me. I would image there is suppose to be an o-ring. At least mine did.

Cool deal. Thanks for the reply. I'll have to check into finding a good sized o-ring to replace it with. After changing it, it looks like there's still a tiny bit of weeping around the plug, even though it's snugged down.
