Hey all, My brother and I were at the Goode Guys car show today in Lincoln, Ne. and came across a unique piece that I believe was on a 1956 ford. This piece was on the intake side of the motor and was about 10" in dia. My brother has dealt with cars his entire life and for him to have never seen something is rare. Well to make the story short, it turned out to be a Mcculloch blower. I did know that Paxton Mcculloch made blowers but had never seen one. I have attached a photo in case others have not seen them before. Thought it was pretty cool. Thanks, Dean
I actually found a small McCulloch screw type blower that was made in the 60's that I'm going to use on one of my Foxes to supercharge a Mac.
I have it figured out that it will build 6 psi of boost and plan on pressurizing the whole carb.
Lots of fabricating to do yet but here's a pic of the blower & gears mounted.
It's a winter project (another one-lol)
From the info I could find on the internet it seems like this blower was made for the military in the early 60's for some sort of stationary engine.
I'll post progress pics & how it performs on here when I get that far.
