I doubt that the volume of air a smog pump would move could keep up with the airflow needs of an N, unless you really turned it FAST, but it might be fun to see. They really don't move that high a volume of air.
On the other hand, several models of cars over the last 10 years have had engines that were upgraded in power by adding small superchargers that I think operate on much the same principles as a smog pump. Maybe one of those would be a better starting place than a smog pump.
There would be some problems to overcome. I doubt that gravity feed of the fuel would work too well and figuring out a workable pressure box would take some time. I also would worry about octane in available gas--just say no to detonation...
Have you ever considered a tiny turbo with the carb mounted so the turbo sucks through the carb rather than pressurizes it? That would eliminate some of the problems above. Or would the exhaust restriction and additional mixture add too much heat to the flathead configuration?
Or maybe it would just be good to enjoy a good running tractor at its designed horsepower. There are lots of tractors with more horsepower that a person could buy if you really need the power.
