a friend of mine with a gen 1 SC had the nose drive grinding, he ordered a rebuilt one from the dealer, has anybody replaced the nose drive??? do you need to remove the SC or can you just unbolt and install the new nose without yanking the whole unit?

I have a 1st Gen... I think your buddy will need to pull it. If he doesn't, there will be nose oil all over the front of the engine, let alone getting the oil back in after the new drive is on.

I'm not sure what gen. Charger I have but it is Black. Anyway I have oil leaking out of the nose cone. I guess it is time to replace or rebuild. I also need some info on this.

Black is the second gen kit the first gen kits were gray. If I were you guys, I would call Magnuson before I went through the markup supply chain that the dealership has to go through.

You can replace the nose drive on the gen 1 supercharger without removing the supercharger from the engine, but it is a PITA and you really don't save much time.

You will need to remove the top radiator hose and then the top timing belt cover. Then stuff a big towel under the seam where the nose drive bolts to the supercharger.

Then unbolt it and crack it loose. About 5 oz of oil will spill out and you can catch it all in the towel.

Now you understand you can not put the new oil in with the nose drive on the supercharger because the fill plug is on the underside of the nose drive. What I did was drill and tap a hole in the nose drive for an 1/8" NPT plug on the top side. Once the new nose drive was bolted in place, I removed the plug and poured in the new oil.

I also fabbed a dip stick so I can pull the plug and see if the oil level has gone down and I can top it up as needed, or suck it out and change it when I want to.

The black Gen II superchargers have the fill plug on the front side so you can do this more easilly.

Hey, that's not a bad idea, Steve. Drilling and tapping for a new fill plug that is. Duh, now why didn't I think of doing that when I had it off, damn it.
