Can anyone identify this blower?

Looking good Bob.
Question: Do you think the intake openings are big enough to supply full flow through the output opening, or will you be restricting that down some to get higher velocity?

There was one square piece of sheet metal with a U-shaped cutout for the shaft that slides in the slots. You can see the no-paint silhouette. It was almost fully closed when I got the blower. There are also slots on the other side and it appears that they were tied together with a common adjusting mechanism at one time to regulate intake airflow. The other blowers of this type (Agri-Fab, Olathe, Toro) seem to have smaller intakes. We'll have to see.
Test ran the engine today and set it in place. Still have to make a shaft guard.

One of my concerns is that it may not turn fast enough.

@Richard001 Does this look acceptable?
