How To Properly Torque the Center Bolt on TM-12 Supercharger..

Hi !

I´m wondering, first of all, what is that big bolt on the center of the ASA TM-12 supercharger (probably on the center of any supercharger...) ? Second, what are the correct torque specs for it ?

Thank you !

i think its in close relations with the clutch on the unit.


when you gas and keepin under the vacuum pressure.. this bolt does not move while your drive belt drives the blower..


but when you have vacuum pressure and give it some gas, the bolt will spin when its clutched in and provide bo0st..

maybe your better off not touching the bolt...it can be more serious then spraying wd-40 all over the belt systrem
