I acquired this gem with a box of MG parts that I purchased. Was wondering if it would be applicable to an MGA and/or early MGB? Also would like to know what additional parts would be necessary to put it to use. I know it needs an intake manifold and a carb, but where can you get them?

Hi Gary,

It appears that your supercharger is out of a Mercedes C230.

It is the same model Moss uses for their MGB kit but the case and pulley are different. If your fabricating skills are up to it you might be able to make it work.

Thanks for the link Ken. I'm afraid that would be outside my skill set. I'll offer it up on Kijiji, maybe someone with a Benz might like it.
