Busy day today. Polished up a few parts of the blower
Here’s the mock up. My buddy Howie cleaned all the little stuff. I took the oil pump apart and found a few aluminum shavings. Took the pump apart and got them all out.



Here’s my bro Marqo, Chief Mechanic.


The Build is getting Bigger




All polished up




Should have the heads by Thursday. There is a ton of stuff left. I need most of the gaskets, Need to rebuild the carbs and buy new linkage, install the pully shaft. a mile of Stainless Steel braided line and all the fixens that go withem.
Getting real close

looking good Jimmy :)...i gotta say tho, that blower set-up is older than u are! lol...i sure hope u dont have any trouble with it!...2" drive & 1/2" pitch pulleys are a thing of the past (old school)...i guess when u get some things "free", u gotta go with it!...i personally wouldnt run too much boost!...remember that blower came off of a SBC back in the day, NOT, a 515 BBC!

I'll take it easy. Problem is Marqo prolly wont agree with that statement:D Blower is old set up but its brand new. This one hasn't been fired. it was just sitting in the corner of his garage. Marqos been trying to get me to run this blower on the Kachina for years. Free? Wucha mean free. :D Its a loner till I get the 8/71:)devil. I haven't told him the 8 71 is 10 years out:D

Ron, I can always buy different pullies. What cha got in you Pully pile Ron :D Any 1/2 pitch 33 and a 36???

Billy, I know I'm gunna have to modify the hatch:(. I'm sure the carbs will make up for the loss of the scoop. there bad ass.

Its coming along real nice now.

Jake looks like 3 weeks. I need to make a Pump brace and that's about a week out material wise.
