    Pulled a rookie mechanic move and need some advice

    In the process of taking off my super charger and the top bolt ended up getting stripped. The bolt is stripped and so is my tools. The bottom two came out easy, now this one is making me want to drown my frustrations in a bottle of whiskey. Any ideas, Advice, or suggestions? I'm open to anything

    I tig weld a nut to the broken off bolt/stud with a ss rod, put a little candle wax on it, let it sit for about 5 min then wrench it out.....if you don't have a tig welder then the vise grip easy out method is left.

    Thanks but I resorted to cutting the head off with my Rockwell. Now the supercharger won't come out. Yes all the bolts are removed and everything is disconnected

    Agree with the candle wax on a hot bolt, this has worked for me when nothing else did....

    Yup I got it off. Let's just say that it should have been gone through 2 years ago
