Super Chargers

Postby Ian46 » Tue Jan 19, 2021 11:08 am

Just wondering if there are any experts on here that know anything about fitting superchargers to (sidevalve) MM's.

I don't have all the details from my contact, but he mentioned the name - Keith Luck, who he has tried to contact without success, however I don't know if he is still around or whether there are other 'experts' available that can be contacted to discuss?

I'm just looking for email addresses in the first instance that I can pass on as I have no experience on this matter.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Busy collecting parts for my '52 MM Convertible and 1949 Saloon restorations. :o

Got it. Ta.

Have been away chopping the legs out from under 3 x Airbus A330s at Manchester. Great fun!

Might be getting a teaching job in Bolton soon. Had to look it up on a map. :D

Just been looking at some Spotters chat about the 3 Thomas Cook aircraft at Manchester. They were only 20/21 years old, which is nothing for some aircraft.

The problem was that after TC went bust there was no preventative maintenance done on them and no covers put over the engines. Same happens with cars, I guess.

Yes, 12 months in the open in Manchester, with no maintenance and no engine covers they might as well have parked them on a beach somewhere. :lol: :lol:
