Will the pulley turn by hand? If not then you will need a rebuilt supercharger. If the belt just came off then check all the pulleys to make sure they turn freely without any binding. If all is okay then you most likely need a new belt tensioner. Once they loose the ability to keep the belt tight you loose the belt. Good luck. Call us if you still need help. (707)643-7548
