    OK, I am screwed....
    My buddy and I are working on doing the Metco 2.85 upper and we are having MASSIVE issues.
    We have been turning on the pully for over 1 hr and it keeps spinning the shaft. We are immobilizing the pins but the bolt keeps turning and backing out. We re-tighten and go again, and it keeps doing it.

    Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know a solution? We are making NO progress. If anyone would like to call me and walk me through this, I would owe you my first born.

    We are turning COUNTER-clockwise.

    This is all correct. I originally took out the bolt in between the pins on the backside, then realized I didn't need to.

    Torque the crap out of that (above 100 ft lbs for sure). Then fix the pins, use the metco key for the front hex at the center of the supercharger pulley, and turn it counter clockwise, like you're doing. I ended up doing this job solo, but in my shop I have all sorts of weird conveniences

    I think when I put the new pulley on I torqued it to 120ft lbs. would have to check my build thread

    Thank you for the help, I was worried I had broken something in the shaft.

    Did you get it taken care of and done? The only thing you want to be sure of is to make sure you're locking those pins as far and close to the housing as possible.

    Nooooooope, it went from bad to worse. We torqued the bolt to 65lb and it snapped the head off. Now I have to find a place to get the bolt drilled out.... :(

    No big thing don't sweat it. Head to Sears and get a left handed drill set. The worst case is call metco and they can send you a new one. Don't sweat it crap happens

    Agree with wack. If the head popped off you really just need to drill so you have something to grab onto. Should come right out.

    I'd take a deep breath. Maybe take a day off, and come back with clear mind.

    Sorry to here your troubles
    That bolt does not need to be removed at all for pulley install, just get it out and replace it then use the metco pulley tool on the opposite side while holding the pins stationary. No need to touch that bolt.

    Just hope you didn't strip the threads in the aluminum. Idoubt it since you snapped the head off. Its probably an aluminum bolt as well.

    Best of luck

    I thought you where supposed to use the pins to hold it from turning.
