Technical Ford Four Banger Blower Identification (What Is It?)

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Scotch Buzzard King, Nov 19, 2019.

  1. I found a couple of pictures of this blower on a Ford four banger, and I have no idea what it is. Does anybody know what it is?

  2. Nobody? At first glance, I thought it was a converted coffee grinder. Its about the same size...

    Here's some shots of different types. From a supercharging book I have.

    Sure looks similar doesn't it.
    I wonder if some one is making a kit with the drive extension and support bracket.
    O.p. is there any indication where the pictures were taken or who the owner(s) is (are)?
    Might help narrow it down for you.
    Looks like a cool application, I would be curious to know what it adds for hp.
     
  6. pic I have saved, not mine. I have info somewhere, it might be a converted aircraft cabin blower, if I remember correctly. IMG_2495.JPG

  8. I'm wondering about that kit myself. From all of the help of you guys, the supercharger is a AMR500. I was looking for a kit for this conversion online. I came up empty. Every kit from these three pictures looks homemade with the exception of the two pictures that I posted. Those drive extensions look identical with the exception of one being polished, and one retaining a cast finish. This suggests to me that either the same guy made these extensions, or the same foundry made these two pieces. I guess there is no real way to be for sure.
     
  9. In the top two photos, the cast one seems to have a name cast in the extension piece. I can't make it out but it suggest that it is a factory piece. Also I believe this was talked about in one of the banger meets a while back. Might want to try there for more info.

    The first picture I think is at Pendine Sands. Its a 30/31 modified. The owner is Gary Bust. He ran in V4BF/M class. asasasassasasasadddddddddd.PNG

  13. That AMR500 blower was on a (OT) VW engine at Bonneville this year. I talked to the owner, and if my memory is right, it is used in Japanese home market vehicles. It also has a 350 size which is smaller than the 500. I had never seen the small blower before, I guess there is someone making a mount kit for the VW engines. Guy said it was good for about 4 psi on his baja bug.

    And since a std VW is about 100 ci, on a 200 ci engine we're looking at 2 psi !
