re: TP180-18 starting to take shape!!

i hate those gay "click" flow valves. It's very hard to get the engine running on liquid fuel. My neighbors were gettin mad or at least their braty kids were. A damn 8 year old yells,"Be quiet!" I ran it a few more times to scare them away lol and then my sister/fuel controller went inside and my mo...

re: TP180-18 starting to take shape!!

IT RUNS!!! I stuck a blowtorch in the pipe and with the propane on it ran! no forced air. I put a sparkplug in the hole and it was self sustaining.

re: TP180-18 starting to take shape!!

so i don't even need a sparkplug? just get the chamber red hot with a torch, then turn the propane on and it starts? or will it need some forced air? The propane is only there for starting/warming purposes, right now I have an almost straight cut rosscojector (it's angled very slightly since it's of...

It's DONE!!!!!


I haven't started it yet tho, low on propane and 20 degree temps dont mix well. I need to get a miter/chop saw, bad!! I cut all the metal with a damn jigsaw, and it's a fairly advanced frame.

re: TP180-18 starting to take shape!!

started on the stand tonight. The stationary part of it is almost done, i need to add feet (so i can stake it into the ground), a spring mount, and add a cover to the bearing tracts. The stand is setup so the jet is mounted to a rolling "chassis" which is connected to a spring and then i'll add a li...
