Got an email from Lindsay Shoemark in OZ. He has finished some new blower intake manifolds for the 471 GMC style blowers. Probably similar to the old Cragar that are nearly impossible to find. Blow off plates on the sides and integral thermostat housing.Will post pics as soon as I can reduce size. Of the pics that is, no hope for me.

Not a bad price considering it is a low production part, I think a Hogan fab'ed intake is close to 3 grand.

Am I wrong or does the side mounted blow off plate discharge the fuel/air mixture if you go over your design boost pressure. What keeps this perfectly mixed discharge from exploding when it meets a random spark or red hot header under the hood?

Scares me big time

I never considered that the backfire valve sent a shot of the air/fuel mixture directly out over the engine. I guess a small flash fire under the hood is better than a blower through it? w00t Chuck

Nice job, and apparently well designed. Looks like a quality piece.

When one runs a roots style (GM or other) blower, unlike a centrifugal huffer ( EG turbo or McCullough) you have a positive displacement device ( think a rotating piston). As there is a significant volume of air/fuel mixture below the blower, a backfire event can develop enough pressure under the blower to launch the whole shebang through the hood or even through the dyno room roof towards the moon ( I saw the afterwards result once; thankfully not on my shift).

The lakes guys and drag racers discovered this just after WW2, and by the mid 50's blow-off plates or valves were required by most all sanctioning bodies. The design using springs is likely best for street usage as it is self-resetting and most often you just restart and can keep on running. Plates by design must be replaced, bummer for a road machine. The fire out of the plate ends quickly, likely no more than one second unless something else inside broke, and of course ends when the valve reseats. It does get your attention when it occurs. I suggest carrying a spare set of underwear.
