2.7 - Supercharger ( Paul Stow,  December 1, 2001 )

The supercharger itself is of the Eaton type, which differs from the Rootes model in having helical shaped vanes. The unit is reliable and the only required maintenance is to check the oil level, which can be read on the stick attached to the cap located at the front of the supercharger. Note the use of a special long life synthetic oil, available from dealers, and there is no recommended change.

Topping up is done by removing an allen type bolt located to the front left of the supercharger body.

The bypass circuit is actuated at idle or low throttle settings and consists of a pipe and vacuum actuated control valve located at the back of the supercharger allow air to pass directly from the inlet side to the outlet.
