Thank you oldnslow, but I'm looking for something smaller in size than these look.

I've successfully modified the Revell Matt Hay T-bird and pro street Lincoln to replicate the 4-71, or you can try a resin caster.

It sounds like you may need a smaller blower like a SCoT blower. I'm struggling to recall which kits had these. The old AMT 57 Chevy had a smaller blower once you ditch the carb set-up. Some MPC C-cab show rods had a small blower in them, too. There are numerous others, but my brain isn't working this morning.

Thank's for the help everyone.

Bainford, I just went thru my stash of kit's and found the AMT 57 Chevy, but the blower is missing from my kit so I could not get a look at it.

doesn't the nomad have the same engine and blower setup? I've got one of those engines in my parts box

I like to work just as much as I don't.

Unfortunately the box art illustration is difficult to judge by, as it includes the carbs and their manifold on top of the  blower. I took some photos of one from my parts box, comparing it to a typical 4-71 and 8-71 blower. It is quite a bit smaller and has decent detail, but unfortunately I am unable to post pics from my work computer (where I am now). If I get to a usable computer I will post the photos, though not sure when that will happen.

Sorry it took so long to get these photos posted. The small blower (and the assembled engine) is from the AMT 57 Chev. For size comparison I have shown it next to a typical 4-71 and 8-71 blower (without end covers). If it suits your purpose and you can't find the one you have, we can work something out for the one on the built engine (unfortunately the unused blower is slated for a blown Ardun project). PM me if you need it.
