    I’ve seen that picture before in a mid ‘50’s issue of Hot Rod Magazine.
    With that chain drive set up like that it is building little, if any, boost. The rotors are pushing the air down through the center of the case, rather than around the sides where it can be efficiently compressed.

    That picture must be flopped. He couldn't be that dumb. And if he was. everybody and their brother would have told him about it the first time he took it out.

    There is virtually no volume between rotors to transfer air downwards. If it could, it would all (and then some) be transferred back in the large volumetric space outboard of the rotors. In effect, the "blower" would be a vacuum pump, sucking air out of the engine through the exhaust/intake valves when they are overlapped, and pumping to atmosphere out the top of the blower.

    Possible explanations:

    Blower has a set of transfer sprockets and short chain in front of blower case, that actually rotates the port side rotor clockwise (unlikely).

    Picture is flipped (as pointed out by Fordors, there is good photo evidence that this isn't the case).

    Screw-type blower could be designed for apparent rotation as pictured (intake and discharge would not be centrally located, and I don't think anyone applied screw technology back then).

    The Photoshop Forum folks are playing games on us (can prove unlikely, if original Hot Rod photo has been faithfully reproduced).

    Engine is of marine ancestry (i.e., rotates backwards).

    This is driving me nuts, can someone who knows step forward?
