Another nice little motor, well done.
I wonder if an induction pipe augmenter can be added just by welding a single strip of sheet metal onto the tailpipe, in much the same way as the induction pipe?
Thanks much. However, as discussed in my newer thread on this forum, I don't seem to get any thrust out of her. Just a fueling geometry problem, or something much more structurally fundamental, as Eric believes? I'm not sure what to think ...
A part of the answer may be in Graham's suggestion -- maybe old man Coanda is playing tricks on you and robbing you of power. An intake augmenter welded or bolted onto the tailpipe might do wonders. Even a simple flat plate, a flow splitter preventing Coanda from doing his worst, might help.
BTW -- a beautiful, simple and remarkably well defined heat pattern.
