Post BLOWER MOTOR WITHOUT BLOWER

WONDERING IF ANYBODY KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT RUNNING A BLOWER HOUSING (6-71) ON A 350 CHEVY WITH A TWO BARREL CARB INSIDE. I SAW THIS ONCE ON A ROD AND WAS REALLY IMPRESSED.

all that I know is by the time you get the housing, the intake and all the stuff to make it look like it is blown, you would have spent enough money to actually have a blown motor. Lots of luck either way

not true can be done for under a grand. you can have great gas milage and still be plenty fast enuff hell u can only go 55 on the highway. you are only using the front 2 butterflys of the carb anyway unless u live out of the US and on a dirt road where u can keep you foot glued to the floor board and listen to the gas being sucked up and out the exchaust it will be a nice head turner.if done right i dont care i doing one and when im done u wont be able to tell the difference

dummy blower

I found an old barge in the snake river about 50 years ago that was upside down and had a 671 jimmy in it. the water was low and I pulled off the blower. When I checked out what was involved and the cost to rebuild for automotive use I decided I couldn't afford it on a high school students wages. I was going to use it for a dummy on the T bucket I was building but a guy made me a good deal on some parts I needed. He spent all winter carrying the case around sanding by hand and polishing it to get rid if the under water corrosion on the outside. He said there was enough grease on the inside to save it.

To give a phony impression. It might be okay, until he comes up against a real blower motor, or worse, a carbed engine that runs good.

I have a sbc blower motor and .....It gets great gas milage for a blower motor as long as I stay out of it. It get close to 12-15 miles to the gallon with two 650 carbs and a 4-speed and a light foot. I dont see why any body would want to "fake" it when the real thing is very dependable and can do somewhat good on fuel. And, by the way go like a "raped ape" when you mash the go pedal. Tim
