Request for anyone, and especially Kimble McCutcheon if he still is a member of the AEHS: Weight of the entire turbo-supercharger installation in the P-47, including ducts, plumbing, controls and supports, and weight of a typical geared supercharger for a fighter application of the R-2800. This information will be used in a book about U.S. fighter aircraft that will include extensive comparisons between those fighters.

Some of your questions are partially answered by a thread that appeared on another bulletin board; please see
https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/ge-turbochargers.42572/

One must join the board in order to download the images and documents, however, the one I supplied is accessible via the following link:

I do not have data on the weights of single-stage engine-driven superchargers.

Perhaps a request to our colleague, Mr. Ludvigsen, who is the author of the (mythical?!☺) book, The Supercharging Story : The Exciting Century-Long Saga of High-Pressure Engines in Road and Racing Cars from the Earliest Blowers to the Latest Turbos, might elicit some information.

Yes, Mr. Ludvigsen. I’m the book guy that you met on the bus in Nottingham at the AEHS Convention, who had the book on Beardmore. If you have published the Supercharging book, can you please tell me where I can get a copy?

Thank you.

PS When I get a replacement contact lens, I’ll look through my copy of German reports on Allied engines.pdf, to see if there is any information.
