I know this thread is pretty old but wondering if these plates are still available for both blown and unblown setups? I would be interested in one of each.

Hi Jim,

This is an old one!

We had sold all the other kits, well I have one I've hung on to for myself. I could reach out the the machinist and see if he would like to make another run of these, but would probably need a few other interested parties for it to make sense.

Agreed, maybe someone has one they never used.

I have the Front Plate and a BOP set-up someplace.
Probably covered up by Holley & Rochester carburetors, LOL!

If you are not planning to use that stuff and willing to dig it out and sell it let me know and I will send you a PM with my phone number.

I will look tomorrow. The engine plate is easy. The rest of the belt drive stuff will take some looking.

Not so good news. He wanted a fuel pump drive system for a Pontiac and I had a
Belt Driven Camshaft Drive system from BOP Engineering.

Tom, as you know, sometimes you need a part designed and it's justified by selling a few more. As is the case here. I wound up selling several then pulled the plug on my racing program at the time, so I never pursued making any more. It only makes sense for someone if they are running the BOP belt drive, and need a way to drive a large volume mechanical pump. I think we only made around 10 kits.

The machinist I used was hit pretty hard by covid, I spoke to him today and it sounds like he may have some remaining pieces. If there were to be more interest, it's likely we could produce more.

I bought this kit years ago as I added a 10-71 Roots blower to my engine and it works great. I highly recommend it. When I documented my blower conversion in a thread up here in this section years ago, I thanked KGTO and a few others here who made parts for fellow Pontiackers and sold them at a reasonable price. Couldn't have done it without them.

That is very good news for people who want to go down that path.

Hopefully you can make it happen again.
