    Default Blower confusion. Stripped for alky.

    I was planning on building a class legal BBC engine for my GN boat. I haven't fully committed on weather I'm going to go race gas or E-85. It will be supercharged(10-71) and either carbureted or injected. Jury is still out on that part. My main question is regarding the blower set up. Can you run a blower that has been stripped for alky on race gas or visa versa. I have an opportunity to pick up a rebuilt blower that has been stripped for alky and I just don't want to buy something that I can't use. Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    Alky blower will be clearanced too tight. Has to go to blower shop and clearances changed for gas use.

    Default The Fiat

    I realized today that I had never posted the few pictures I had of the 48 Fiat that I had. I only had a few and I had to figure out how to convert tiff files to jpg.
    Hopefully this works.
