Smiths Air Blower Gauge

Post by timmy201 »

Any body know anything about this gauge? It's 0-20psi positive pressure, not vacuum. I haven't been able to find another like it so far!

The part no. is PD2300/02.

I'm not going to have a use for it as I don't plan on supercharging or turbocharging my mini.

I think it is used to measure the pressure in a supercharger, hence the term Blower Bentley!

Think its for Suck through chargers eg the Shorrock chargers

as eg BMW mini Cooper S uses a blow through and a standard turbo boost gauge works fine

Do you still have this? That’s just the thing I’m after....
I've got a 69 Mini with a 1046, Cooper Head and a four on the floor.
