Mr. Sobak,


This may be old news to you, and maybe you have already been down this road, but there is a gentleman by the name of Skip Allum that has been Don Prudhomme's right hand man for many years.  As I understand it, he was very involved and instrumental in several of Prudhomme's restoration projects.  I don't know how to get in touch with him directly, but if you attempted to contact him through the Snake Racing site, perhaps he could help you with some of the information that the Hendricks organization will not.  Just a thought.

Mr. Chris Sobak,


Info for you more than anything else....at the time the Prudhomme Army Vega would have originally been campaigned, the blower most likely would have been an original GM 6-71 blower.  There is an outside chance it could have been a GM 8-71.  They were about the only blowers used by successful teams in the 60's and 70's.  Littlefield blowers did not begin manufacturing blowers until about 1980.


As an aside, I actually worked as an engineer on the manufacturing line for the GM 6-71 and 8-71 blowers for a couple of years in the early 80's.  The manufacturing tolerances on the rotors were incredibly small....much smaller than many people might think.  Unfortunately, no free samples!!
