OK...so I puchased this blower set-up last year, at a swapmeet, to put on my SBC in my car. I'm not exactly Joe Mechanic, I know just enough to get in trouble. I had the motor built and I'm going to find help to mount the rest. Here's my problem (see photo) I'm thinking the Quill/shaft for the snout is not the right lenth. The guy I got the blower from said it was on a 454BB. I'm putting in on a 355sbc. I'm looking for ideas, do I need to find the correct shaft for this snout? Or Am I missing a part maybe this had a different snout?? Heck, I'm not sure, and any advice would be great! Also is the shaft made to come out of the snout? if so what holds the shaft in the snout when the blower is running? Click image for larger version.
