My Vintage Speed Ghia now sports a blower...nothing surprising there but some might be surprised to see it's not a Judson.

It's a Shorrock C75bv fitted to my 34hp engine with a big bore kit. The blower is overdriven slightly to offset the larger 1385ccs

Well the engine has 3000 miles on it so I suppose you could say it's run in. The blower runs very well, very smooth and pulls in top without hesitation from around 20 mph...oodles of power for a 1385. Driven about 20 miles in it so far as the fitting was only completed yesterday afternoon. Rainy today so I haven't played with it today.:?
