Top Bolt on SC wont come out
hi, so ive ran into a weird problem with the removal of my supercharger. I've been able to remove the side and bottom bolt. When i went to remove the top bolt it would not budge, not one bit! i ket trying and trying but nothing. Come to find out i think i stripped it. I've taken SC's out but ive never ran into this problem before...so i'm guessing im SOL and need to take it in?

cut the head off the bolt and use heat and a good pair of vise grips to remove the stud-- should come right out.

Use a small cutting wheel on a dremel and cut the head of the bolt off..the slide the Scer out and use a vise grip to take the rest of the bolt out of the housing...its not a easy job but can be, and has benn done by many on here...after removing the SCer and bolt replace the 3 with new SS hex head bolts,youll never have this issue again...

i ground the head/washer off a customers last week. it sucks but can be done in about 20 mins. next time around leave that bolt out or get a hex head if you want.

Okay looks like thats what i'll be doing. Yeah i also use some anti seize but whoever removed this SC before me def didnt. Where can you find the stainless ones? And Slow, do you mean i can leave that bolt completely out!? that'd make installing these waaayyy faster haha

Any common hardware store will carry those bolts...

I have used a cold chisel @ 45* angle and hit it in the loosening direction and sometimes she pops. Also install the other two while working on the top to remove any pressure. I like to remove the top first and install it last..
