thats gonna launch the belt for sure. No bracket from the blower can be on the frame, nor is one needed.

That's actually not a bad place for the bracket as long as the motor is not moving. I'd hate to see him make the blower mount firm and find out the motor is moving and throwing the belts. The blower is always pulled forward and down towards the crankshaft as the belt get tighter. My bar is horizontal and attached to the cage. Same belt for two years now at 35lbs of boost.

advice from "Dave W. " @ procharger , yellow bullet fans , and my fkin' wallet from smacking the hood and 4 belts in one weekend .......any questions ???:cool:
The last time I checked, I don't think I recommended that you: 1) Go out and buy a bottom plate to a leaf spring 2) Then bolt it to your frame. If I remember correctly I said you needed to come up with a RIGID MOUNT for your blower brace. That way you would have a good way of PRELOADING the blower, so you can keep your belts from flying OFF! I clearly can not take credit for your INGENUITY!

My idea: WELD a bracket (not JB Weld) to your frame, that way you are able to push the blower back (PRELOAD) to keep the blower from tipping in under boost. Also I believe I asked you to make sure that the motor was solidly mounted. Any flex can cause an issue with belt alignment under a load (boost). We have plenty of customers that have been successful with this set-up. There is no reason we can't help you make your's a success.

Remember: You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. (Unless you hold their head under.):p

Was there something wrong with welding a chassis tab on the frame directly below the tab on the blower?

I don't mean to badmouth, but damn, that looks hoosier.
