Is anyone able to identify this supercharger?

It’s a dual vane roots type, it’s not a Shorrocks or Judson, it’s key difference being the inlet and outlets are on opposite sides of the casing.
It came with a bunch of TJ fuel injection and lotus elite parts I bought. I was going to use this on 1500 Seven project with IRS.
Any ideas help gladly received

Hi Vaughan,

Possibly a version of the Marshall-Nordec supercharger commonly used on early Mg's?

Al, you’re a font of knowledge, I had wondered if it was one that was mounted in front of engine as it has the four studs.

Al, after searching for the make you suggested I found an amazing MG site with links to the many different Superchargers that were available and an identical image was alongside the following entry.
M.A.G. This was a high quality unit by Motosacoche S.A. in Switzerland. Also known as “MAG”
Used on MG and VW in 50’s good for up to 1500 cc engines.
