Blower Help Pls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Question????? A well known engine shop around here who don,t like me anymore....anyway they put the case on my 671 backwards and said just tap new holes front & back in my new weind manifold...hummmmmmmm. Then they also didn,t put any dowls in it saying they weren,t needed as its underdriven. Are they right? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Marty

I suggest you take or send your blower to a blower shop and have it gone over. If you take chances and the rotor hit the case or each other, you will have a chunck of aluminum goor for recylcing and that's about it.

I think camaroman7d is right. The superchargers are machined to very tight tolerances and need to be doweled. The people at this engine shop probably haven't dealt with too many of these and are probably guessing at what is supposed to be correct. If you don't have a blower shop near you, call B.D.S. or get a hold of Oddy's Performance in Elma or Buffalo, N.Y.( I think it's Elma) These guys are great. I've called in the past and they were very helpful.

Marty, Good choice. You will be happy you did. I was lucky enough to get to look over the shoulder of Don Hampton (Hampton Blowers) when he was building and setting up my blower. I can tell you it is pretty darn precise work. Just knowing where to measure was amazing enough, let alone getting all the measurements into spec. I am not afraid to do just about anything, but I don't think I would tackle trying to set up a blower (at least not yet). The penalty of a mistake is far too high. Yes, dowels are a good idea. I don't think I have ever seen a car running a blower that didn't have dowels.

Oddy's Auto
651 Bullis Rd.
Elma, NY 14059
phone: 716-674-2500

i personaly live about 3 miles from them, and ive been in a few times with verious questions about different engine related things and they have NO problem taking the time to answer any questions or concerns you have

ive talked to Oddy himself once too, very impressive guy. i just came in to ask some questions about self porting and polishing some heads, and he was answering my questions as if i was there to write an entire book on how oddy ports heads. the only way i could have learnd more was if he had just grabbed a grinder out of the shop and started showing me.

send your blower to oddy's and you wont be sorry
