    Welcome to my world Check your drive allignment, if it's good like it is just get a msd flat top dist. $368 My allignment is off so much I'm getting another manifold. The blowershop people told me that their manifold as well as littlefield and mooneyham's places the blower a full one inch further forward then weiand. They told me 1/2" on the BDS unit. Check the spam section Jim has a polished blowershop piece for sale

    i have a SBC Weiand blower manif that also sets the blower back...Dale Welch sells a set of Timken sealed roller bearings that replace the old style ball bearing rollers & u run NO rear cover...solves the problem perfectly...i run a mag & it fits fine...i think they are @ $40 set

    cause they work well !!! Check out the ads on dragboats.com there are always offset drives for sale I bet a few of the racers have some laying around
    another option is to run your distrubuter off of the cam .

    u remove the outside rear cover (2 piece)...inner has the bearings...take the retainer plates off that hold the roller ball bearings in place...take the bearings out & replace with the sealed bearings & put the retainer plates back on...put the bolts thru the inner cover all around & ur done...takes about 15-20 min...i'm gonna make a 1/4" alum solid plate that covers the rear for looks, but u dont really need it, except for looks...i'm just trying to save u a bunch of $$$...u can go the other ways that were suggested, if ur rich, cause none of that stuff is cheap or chng the bearings...u do the math...$40 against $400+...i personally spent the $40 & it works fine

    i understand this very well...they work fine, but, he is new to the blower scene & has had alot of trouble getting everything up front lined up (pulleys, idler brkt etc) so i was trying to save him alot of $$$...new/used parts are not cheap!...this is a fix that works just fine ...if any of u lived close to him, u could always go "help" him out!!!!!

    i would much rather do it this way. i was dreading spending another $3-400.00 dollars. i will give them a call. i checked their website and could not find the set-up. is there a certain part i should ask for? i would be interested in a cover also

    on there web site...go to blower parts on the left side of menu & scroll down & u will see them...P/N is W20-7050WIN...these are the one's i have in mine...cost: $35.95 shipped...they do not make a cover that will work cause of the set-back of the blower...u either have to make ur own as i stated or leave the outer cover off
