Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Too wild for a "hot" T engine?

Would a scaled down replica of a Chadwick supercharger be too wild for a model T? What do you think assuming the lower end is "built" to take it?

I think a supercharged engine would be just fine. I may ultimately go there as I have a 5 main T bottom end that will take about anything I could through at it!!!

Google "mtfca; supercharger" :-) Too many links to this site to copy using dial up!

There is a T out there that I have seen at a national tour that has a supercharger...and air conditioning.

Fronty offered a crankshaft driven roots supercharger in their 1927 catalog.

Here's mine. Original car had a Gregg supercharger from Green Engineering. Only a very small handful were made exclusively for Duesenberg racing in 25-26. Some found their way to other cars. I went with the next oldest supercharger, the Graham. They made about 1200 and I was able to score one. Well, at least nearly a whole one. With the patent drawings, we were able to machine the missing parts.

Thank you Stephen, that was very interesting. I always thought anything I could make in my own shop was period correct, and fair game on my speedster. Got a pretty old shop. Dave in Bellingham,WA
