Daryl...........flathead engines loose too much cylinder head volume due to necessity of being able to open the flathead valves to really effectively raise engine compression much higher thant 6.5:1.
But if you are really wanting to experiment, try riggin' up a big block Chevy smog pump as a vane driven suppercharger to charge your 120 cu/in flathead. You would have to pressure seal the carb innna big airtight box to get the jets to work right or else suck the carb thru the smogpump and then into the manifold.
Read some hotrod books about supercharging, NOT turbo charging altho that could work if you're really into engineering, welding and machineshop work. Used smogpumps are cheap..........Dell
