Tons of fun...
I.. ummm... What the hell is this contraption?????
Musta been a chill in the air when this picture was taken....
Like our last couple of days in Michigan!
Looks like a separate gas engine turning the fuel pump and chain drive on the blower. Can't say seeing that before

You said it!!!!!!
I think that is an old Ranger six cylinder aircraft engine with the front mounted blower in the 169 roadster.
Yes it is.
Connecticut not much better; its up to a bone warming 27° right now..Was 0° early Monday morning!!
From what I'm seeing: the fuel pump feeds the supercharger fuel and its fed under the ribbed cover under pressure to the intake valves without a manifold. How would you ever get even fuel distribution to all cylinders?
Great looking system however.
This supercharger is driven by a separate two cylinder engine?

I wonder if that's a snowmobile engine

No it's not a snowmobile engine. It's been posted in a couple threads over the years but I forget what it really is from.
Yes. Outboard engine used to drive blower. I have to guess that a full Hilborn fuel injection lies under that plate, Nozzle at each port and most important, throttle plates at each port. Nothing controlling the intake air to the blower. Engine would be running at WOT all the time. And very lean at lower RPM
Stacks and stacks of stacks...
Y? Y not?
And even more stacks....
