    Hi again Jim.
    This is part 2.
    I purchased a complete engine / blower combo with gilmer drive from a bloke in the UK which turned out to be a bloody scam. I got pinged for $3000-00.
    I tell ya, its been a hard slog, no guessig what my Xmass wish was.........HAHAHA
    I have been trolling the interner for ages trying to get this combo to come to life.
    Amongst all the message board threads and postings I came across several of yours, hence this message.
    Now for the $64,000 question..............
    Can you help point me in the right direction here and help me find the bits I need. I would consider buying a complete setup providing of course it was legitamate and not another scam.

    Any help or suggestions you may have will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there Jim.
    This is a 2 part message,its a bit long
    I hope you had a great Xmas and new Year.
    I have corresponded with you a while back about my B&M 162 blower, a conversation I found very helpful. I have outgrown this old thing now and have been trying to cobble together a B&M 250 blower combo, with some success and some bad luck.
    The first purchase I made was for a SBC setup with a buggered blower case and no drive or idler setup. When it arrived the manifold was badly worn with a corner broken out of it and all the threads pulled. I think the guy has machined the top of it down about 6mm as well as the threads are very near the top, hence why they pulled I am guessing.'
    I have purchased two 250 blowers, one has had a screw through it and the other is really good. I can use the input shaft and snout from the SBC one above.
    I have the manifold away getting repaired, I hope it will be ok.
    All I need now, providing the manifold comes out ok is the gilmer drive setup and idler.
