Re: Senior design pulse jet barely runs...

Although your engine seems to run now, one thing you need to check is your valve material thickness. If the valve material is too thin, the valve won't last and a good sign of this is that you can see the petal starting to bulk and you can see the holes imprints on the petals. If the valve is too th...
