Looks like you've got some decent articulation now! Get some grease onto those axle plates- you can see a lot of wear on them.

Well, there *may* be a solution to that... What about remote mounting it say... back by the differential and using radiator hose to bring the output back up to the intake? the pulley can be an idler/tensioner for the drive system too...

picked up this 1998 ford f-250 smogpump for $5 it made 7psi when the engine was reved to 4200rpm and thats the max i run my opposed twin so it does make boost ima changed the pulley so i can run a normal v-belt what would be a good pulley setup to run? it will be ran off the flywheel and its not really big so i can find a spot for it somewhere

Nice score! Well, the deal is you actually have to consider engine load just to spin it. Try to keep the ratio similar to what it'd be on the engine it came from, if not a little under driven. That way at lower RPM it doesnt drag the motor down much. Keep the pulley engine side similar in size to the crank pulley on the engine it came off of. Eh, IIRC a ford 400 crank pulley has 3 grooves (3 belts I mean) and is about right.

This oughta be interesting! What modifications do you plan to make to the engine to deal with the air boost?

Id set it up so it hits 6-7 psi around 3500, because then you can keep that boost pressure in the higher rpm's when the engine is consuming more.

True and it would make it even more tighter in the engine bay.

I like the idea of a smog pump for turbo.

when i rebuilt my carb i started to think about the smog pump supercharger idea well while i had the carb apart i did a few internal mods bigger jets so it does run rich right now as idle and a little bit rich at max throttle so this should fix it going lean with 6psi running thru the engine nd the reason for my stock heads insted of my shaved ones is the compression if i keep the shaved heads i would of blew the head gasket in less then a hour thats why im running stock heads but i did have the engine ported and polished a few weeks ago i had a pro look at it and he told me 40hp is what im pushing with these mods if i added a turbo and got billet rods and a flywheel i could push 50+hp but he recommended the smogpump idea because i already have a bigger cam in the engine and i might run a small heater core for a intercooler (since im going with the smogpump he sees my HP being around 45-47HP depending on the boost 47hp at 8psi 45 at 5psi)
