how many of you run a vacuum pump on a roots blower? I would like to see how you have the pump and drive mounted.

Thanks

How do you keep oil from locking up the pump? I ran one on the street for short time and the oil vapor locked up the pump. It was a aeromotive pump. Worked great the short time I got to use it.

there was a thread about this a while back. most people said they run puke cans. they said it is a waste of money for a pump. i can't quit remember what it all said but there was a lot of talk about rings not sealing as well with a vac pumps. i just run breathers on mind but i'm and to get puke cans shortly.

IF the pump can maintain vacuum in the crankcase, it's worth it. IF and when the pump can no longer keep up, it becomes a restriction and the crankcase pressure will sky rocket.
