Hi all

I was thinkin yeterday that when I bought my Ei the guy told me that the coupler was replaced in the supercharger and he was like here's an extra bottle of s/c fluid I didn't think anything of it at first I have noticed the s/c sounds like the coupler hasn't been replaced then it dawned on me why did he have a full "extra" bottle of fluid so I went to go check the fluid leaver and the screw for the drain is striped I can't even get it out. What would be the best way to get it out? And is there a part number for a new screw?

Thanks, Keith

You'll need to drill and use an easy-out (screw extractor). Do not drill THROUGH, or you'll be pulling the nosedrive to flush out the shavings. I can probably send you a spare, but in the meantime, let's talk more about your symptoms.

Dagnabbit -- I just stripped out my plug too. Looks like the part number for this is 24500661 and there are still a few available new through GM parts sources ($8 plus shipping). I hate fasteners with internal securing designs (allen, torx, phillips, etc). This happens all too often with them.

IIRC wren has a source for magnetic plugs, although I don't know if they fit in the stock hole or if you have to pull the nosedrive and drill and tap it.

They are NPT thread. Not machine thread like the stock hole. I've done a couple dozen, actually. Including the bozo that just posted before me.

Some of my own superchargers also have them in the BOTTOM as a true drain.
