Inside ASA Supercharger

Ended up taking apart the supercharger due to an oil leak from the side. Took some pictures to show whats inside. Haven't decided if I want to replace the bearings yet. Let me know what you think. Pretty simple design.

I took apart my twinscrew yesterday. I will post pics in my wagon build thread. Funny coincidence given our forum names
How many miles on your compressor? Did you find the source of the leak?

Not sure on the mileage. It came with the car so I am guess around 90-100k. The oil leak was the oil ring that seals the two pieces. Using my air compressor. I pressurized the oil system which resulted in oil spraying out the side. Need to fix this one since the one that is currently on the car started to make bearing noises. Once I get that one out, I can replace it with this one and tear that one apart and replace the bearings. Anyone know of a good place to source bearings? Or can I just repack them?
