MG MGA - Rootes Supercharger
|I came across this Rootes supercharger for sale in an auction. I presume it won't be suitable for an MGA but can anyone give me more information?|
It depends what the target engine capacity of the SC is. To make up manifolds to fit it to the A would not be that hard. Is there any marking to say what model it is.
As it's a rotor type it would be much quieter than the Judson. I assume that the gears for driving the rotors are also there and have no broken teeth?
I don't know anything much about it. I spotted it on-line while browsing a forthcoming automobilia auction: http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/brightwells/catalogue-id-2870773 The estimate is £200 - £300 (Lot 270).
Worth a browse through the Lots. Some of the estimates seem quite low. Pity the Michelin man pump is in poor condition (lOT 230). They have been known to fetch up to £800.
|Hi Steve, Shame to see all this stuff going - it's from the Mouldsworth Museum in Frodsham which has recently closed its doors. We have had several club outings there over the last few years. It was a treasure trove of automobilia in an old water treatment plant - but the water company upped the rental so the chap who ran it had to call it a day. I will put a photo of it on here shortly.|
|Here is a photo of one corner of the museum.I guess many of the signs etc are now for sale at the auction you have a link to .
|The rotor look like those in the Italmechanica that I have.|
