    Blown mk1 HELP!!!!

    Gday, I'm trying to put an m90 supercharger on my 1600 escort. I need advice from anyone with blow through carb supercharger setup. I have the blower and a few leads on carbs, but have no idea how to actually put it all together. Any help on where to start would be massively appreciated. I can make the adaptor plate for the blower to carb, am planning on using fuel pump from VL turbo stock fuel pump as return, can make support arms and pull for blower. Was thinking about using triple copper head gasket to de compression? As can't seem to find larger in Australia.... The list goes on but anybody done this before?? Just trying to turn heads at shows for fun as I've seen turbo eskys but not blown and I think it will look killer

    OK Have the m90 and the info to put it together, making a wood mock up adaptor plate this week. Anyone know where to get a solid carb float?

    solid cork floats but that would be the air in it!
    i assume you want a solid float so it doesnt compress? surely if the float bowl is seeing pressure your venturi isnt working, and nor would the carb

    he is probably talking about having a blow through carb, you can put teh whole carb in a sealed box, then the float bowl will be pressurized, but your never going to have enough pressure to squash a float
