Vortech leaking oil

I have a V2 supercharger that's leaking oil from the bearing behind the pulley. Can anyone tell me what bearing this is that I need to purchase? The supercharger spins freely with no unusual noise or play, therefor there's no sense in replacing all of the bearings.

It is probably a seal leaking, rather than the bearing. I would contact Vortech and see if they have a seal. And they might also have some insight on how difficult that it is to replace.

Pretty sure Vortech will tell you they don't sell the individual parts and they don't recommend anyone but them rebuild them. I mean if its getting up there in mileage it might be a good idea for a rebuild. I'm actually going to contact Paxton to see how much they charge for a basic going through and refresh for my Novi while its out.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
