|For those SC
owners who might not know, you need to periodically check
the fluid level on the supercharger. The level of the
fluid should be up to the bottom of the threads of the
fill plug opening which is located just at the back of
the top of the snout of the supercharger. The plug is
removed with a 3/16 allen wrench or socket head. The
supercharger fluid is Ford part number E9SZ-19577-A.
I am told that GM has the same fluid at a cheaper price
than Ford. I just have always used the Ford fluid and it
lasts a long time under normal circumstances. Fluid
checking is vital to the health of the supercharger. I
have always checked mine at each oil change. When I had
an 89 SC back in 93, I came across a guy who had just
bought a 35th. His dad gave it to him to use for the
advertising business he was in. I asked him how he liked
the car and he loved how it ran. I then asked if he had
checked the supercharger fluid being a used car and he
said "what supercharger?". He had never opened
the hood the entire 3 months he had owned the car. He
didn't even know SC meant supercoupe. This is how many
superchargers go bad. The fluid level is never checked.
Low fluid can also cause the seals to prematurely fail.
So add checking the supercharger fluid level to your
normal maintenance and you will have a healthy
supercharger to power your SC.
