Take out, hammer it in (it will be smaller and easier to push in), let it thaw. Presto! A fit so tight you won't take it out very easily anymore. Pulsejet operation will only make it tighter still.

Safed my day again. Thanks Mark.

The heat will relieve the stress you want in the press. Mine went from merely leaky to downright rattling. I had a press and then ran a pipe cutter fore and aft of the washer that was my press-fit bulkhead. I think the CC tube needs to press inside the bulkhead for best chance at it. and add some muffler bond, too.

I don't think it would take much to do that by design, but to be valuable it would have to be something that occurs naturally or accidentally, like the shape of heat discoloration somewhere after the engine's first run or some such. You can't manufacture miracles that sell, you have to take them where you find them.

Sorry, but I just find holy water to be water, I don't see it being manufactured or having any miracle cures. [...]
