Default HELP!

Hi, i'm new here...

i worked on a car for my niece, the supercharger belt was shreaded becase one of the pulleys locked up. i finally figured out how to change the belts, however in the process on taking the bolt off in order to change the belt i stripped out the tork head (dumb idea imop).so i can't get the bolt out, so i cannot get the supercharger belt on. can she drive the car without the supercharger belt, until she can afford to have it fixed by a pro?HELP,HELP,HELP, THANKS

no, there is nothing else on the SC belt, other than the crank pulley (harmonic balancer) and an idler and tensioner pulley

it will feel sluggish though

plenty of time to get a real mechanic under there... only thing it is hurting is performance...

maybe we can help you get that bolt out.. can you get a bolt extractor?

for anyone stumbling into this topic, please note if this was a 92-95 series 1 supercharged engine, you could not run without the supercharger belt as it also runs the water pump and you would overheat in no time...
