thanx for the help so what is the best way to view this does it have to be removed off the manifold or can it be viewed threw the manifold ports or is it viewed threw the top where the carby sits should there be any back lash in the rotars or are the real tight and firm, this one has maybe 1millimeter play, sorry for the dumb questions but this is my first experiance with a blower and dont no s**t from clay and dont whant to be ripped cheers

there are numerous US based companies that are making blowers based on the Detroit/GM truck units, that are NOT re manufactured but cast new improved & higher quality cases & end plates ,with a flawless polished finnish, and are selling in AUS for $2500 (AUS) or there abouts
I will be pissing off my rebuilt 6/71 for one of these, the quality is like chalk & cheese. Why use old when new is around the same coin?
