Any speed shop should be able to order for you, but any straight 50w synthetic should do in a pinch.

Autorotor's (who manufactured your blower, not KB back then...) datasheets and appnotes suggest the supercharger can even be fed engine oil. That's what those plugs on the side of the blower are for, pressure feed and drain to pan.

why not contact KB, i am getting mine straight from them.
trust me ive tried to call them about other stuff on the supercharger and no one answers. I leave a message and no returned phone call. If it was that easy for me trust me, i would have already done it.

I am not sure what type of supercharger the kb is, but I have a 92 Thunderbird Supercoupe which has an eaton m-90 supercharger. You can get replacement oil from the Ford dealer. The GM dealer also carries supercharger oil as the Pontiac GTP uses an Eaton M-90 as well.

The supercharger is an autorotor/kennebell.

15w50 synthetic will work fine. Like I said, autorotors datasheet indicates that the compressor can be lubed with an engine oil supply instead of an oil bath like the KB set up.

Call both there tech line and parts line, keep trying and they will answer.... eventually. Just keep bugging them.
