Supercharger bolt stripped
Hey guys so I was curious if anyone has ever had a stripped bottom bolt on the supercharger? Go figure it's at the bottom so I am assuming I will have to pull motor anyone ever experience this or any tips on how to get it out without engine removal?

So I went ahead and applied jb weld to the wrench and bolt head and will wait till tomorrow. Sure hope this works.

Yeah I thought bout that too however no way to see what I'm cutting on that bottom bolt. I have the jb settling than will try in afternoon tomorrow. If that does not work may try a socket extractor because I really do not want to lift the motor.

If its that bad, you're wasting your time with jb weld. You might have to pull the engine to access it in order to grind the bolt head off.

I think you are going to be disappointed with how little torque you can apply to the JB weld before it breaks. a 5/16 socket is a little smaller than an 8mm, so you might try that if its not too bad. Try to hammer a female torx or triple square socket onto it. Good luck.

Are you using a 8mm socket or the torx bit? My buddy stripped the one at the top of his with a 8mm wrench. Those bolts can be taken out with a torx bit also, but i'm not sure of the size. Just a thought.

I was using a 1/4" 6mm the 8mm was to big. Just ordered an extractor kit from irwin the 7 PC see if that works.
