Default Removing the supercharger

Well, I'm starting to tear into my 94 s1 sc 3800 engine, with hopes to rebuild it. So far I have everything but the bracket that the idler pulley is bolted to removed in order to get the blower off. Will I have to take the power steering pump out to get this bracket off? I've already taken off the belts, taken off the fuel rail, unattached the power steering resevoir bracket, and got all the blower bolts off. the only problem i'm having is getting the bracket that the supercharger is studded into on the pulley side off. Any help would be appreciated

Put 2 nuts on that stud and jam them together with a pair of wrenches. Then use the BACK nut to remove the stud from the SC.

wow, for the quick reply will. The supercharger'* now off Definitely needs a new coupler, there'* quite a bit of play in the pulley. Is there something you use to get that nut loose on the pulley? We were thinking about placing something int he blower housing to jam it up so the pulley didn't spin with the bolt, but weren't sure if it would do some damage to the teflon coating. Thx again will

Don't jam anything in there.

Use a socket or impact wrench on the nut, and hold the pulley with a large pair of pliers or pipe wrench with an old serpentine belt in between to protect the pulley.

You don't need to do that to replace the coupler.

I'll be replacing the pulley with a smaller diameter pulley anyways, so it has to be done. Thanks again will, I would've never thought of the 2 nuts or the big pliers and the belt.

It'* easier to change the pulley with the SC installed. You don't need anyone to hold it still while attacking.
