Awesome deal on an 6-71 BDS blower setup for a 429-460 Ford engine.

Oh forgot to mention the $3000 from BDS is JUST the blower, no intake, carbs, anything... lol. Man that thing looks good... will that clear a normal distributor? That intake is TALL.
That is one reason Ford's have a bit more of an issue with Blowers than GM engines.
Ford V8 engines (except the "Y"-block and Flat head) have front Mount distributors, so you either have to modify the distributor (off-set or right angle drive) or build the manifold tall enough to mount the blower high enough to clear the stock ditributor height/location. Impressive, but as the original owner may have found out...a bit obstruction to your vision or distracting on the street.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety ... deserve neither liberty nor safety.
