Propane torch at the end of the tailpipe. I like using the torch because it doesn't go out easily.
Mathematically, it can be described in terms of extra dimensions that are rather peculiar. Whereas ordinary space and time dimensions are described by ordinary numbers, which have the property that they commute.

The famous Italian Zanin engines, the Rolls Royce of valved pulsejets, never used the spark plug, but a kind of a kitchen gas igniter on a long stick, which you simply pushed up the engine tailpipe so that the tip would enter the chamber. Once the engine caught, you simply pulled the thing out. The advantage was one less fitting on the engine and appreciably less mass. This was important in flying model competition.

Hahaha, Francisco! I do believe that is the very first picture I've seen of a pulsejet running on a city sidewalk.
