Hear ye, hear ye, I proclaim I have a Judson installed on 59 Bugeye and it

Hear ye, hear ye, the heat issue comes from adiabatic compression
inherent in the design of the unit, not from the friction of the vanes.
(unless you use the wrong vane material, see below)

Hear ye, hear ye, Delrin vanes do not work, as I have performed that
Torlon does work and is designed precisely for this application.
