I'm new to the list so please forgive any newbie oversights.

I am in the midst of a complete rebuid of my '73 B roadster. I bought the
car from under a tarp six years ago...  Long story short - I just got the
car back from a local british car specialist where all of the body work was
done. (a long list of the usuals).

As I am almost fininshed paying off the body work I am turning to the
engine.  I have been considering different approaches to gaining some power.
A supercharger is an option.  My questions are:

1)  Are there any North American  manufacturers of SCs for the B?  I'm in
Ottawa, Canada so the shipping from Australia would be a kick in the shins
so to speak.

2) I have heard there is excessive wear on the engine when a SC is used.
Where and how bad? Are there preventative measures possible?  As the engine
is going to be rebuilt top to bottom all suggestions are welcome and

3) I notice the SC at >  is used with
only a single SU carb.  Reasons?  Trade offs?
