It fills up the left hand side of the engine bay quite nicely ;) I want one. It is a shorrock c75b isnt it.
What bits do I need? I assume it would be:
1 supercharger
1 intake manifold
1 airfilter
1 bigger fuel pump
some pulleys

As I know fek all about these things it would be nice to get it as a kit.. you mentioned about 600 pound (1800 nz) is that about right??

Thanks for the pic, it looks like it is supposed to be there

You are almost there....

You would need the inlet manifold, and there are a choice of 2, the one I have which has the integral 'Pop Off' Valve or the earlier one which has the 'Pop Off' Valve in the adapted 'elbow'

You would need an H4 1.5" SU Carb & air filter

You'd need the C75b itself and as I have just found out as I have 2 units, the backs are different depending on application

A front mounting bracket. (I have several of these as I had a run of them copied from an original)

The correct intake manifold to mount the carb to the blower

The correct oulet pipe from the blower to the inlet manifold

Then, depending on which inlet manifold you have you would need the adapter elbow to go onto the inlet manifold.

You need a T Piece to go on your oil pressure switch similar to what you would use for an oil pressure gauge to give the blower its oil feed.

You dont need to uprate your fuel pump.


I have to say I waited years for this kit to come up, I've seen several Mini ones and MIdget & Sprite ones but I think I've only ever seen 2 Ford kits come up on e-bay in 5 years and one of those was in Finland and the guy wanted 1000 for it.


I guess you can get a helluva lot for $1800 dollars over there when it comes to engines so be sure the blower is what you want.

I only wanted the blower for 2 reasons, one, my van its in is a very low mileage, orignal vehicle and although an ST170 Zetec would have been nice it would have ruined the van and it was too good for that.

and, after being into Anglias for 18 years I've never seen an Anglia with one fitted so it was something nice to have that was different from everyone else. It certainly pulls the crowds at shows.... with arond 60% actually knowing what it is.... and the rest thinking I have some form of Air Conditioning or Power Steering....

Check out http://www.bcsc.co.uk for information on Shorrock Blowers.

DO NOT try and buy anything from this site.

I know a couple of people who have had very bad experiences with this person.

But the information is useful ;D
