Thanks. I spent a lot more time going over the bins at Menards looking for that "just right" part than I did sawing, filing, welding and drilling it! It would be usable on a model plane or boat, too, except that it's awfully high - the hanger would just need to have about an inch cut off before it gets re-bent and the washer gets welded on, and it would be nicely spaced above the mounting plane, even if inverted.Irvine.J wrote:Beautiful work larry. She really is a cracker isn't she?! I'd never seen these stands before, thanks for bringing them to our attention.
See my EDIT above - used a lemniscate spout, which has a similar effect, I think.So tell me... did you put a double D in there :D hehehe? I hope so!
But don't you sort of lose your free hand once the engine's running and you have to keep holding the injector at just the right spot? Or do you have something to clip it into once the depth is established and you're running?Turns out I've had alot of success recently on starting all my engines on a rosco jector , maybe a little easier then trying to play with the fuel and air as it gives you a free hand, get her running then just turn up the fuel :D Anyway, it would be almost criminal to not use that elegant starting system though! Verrrry pretty sir.
All right, I'll make sure you get it. Rats!I did get your email, but you left out your address.
Thanks much, mate. Let me tell you, I have a really good feeling about this one, and remember: If it goes, it will be the first Lady Anne I'll see running in real life! My earlier front-loaded model made some nice noise, but only while I kept hitting it with plenty of air. I'm expecting to do a lot better than that this time around, even if the thrust turns out to be less than I want. The important thing is to prove to myself that my SS one (about half the weight of this one) will run well once it's finished up. That one should be absolutely identical internally, except for the slightly larger intake ID (about 22.5 mm).When you build an engine you do go all out, and she is really pretty indeed, just want to wish you the best of luck with this one, I look forward to it!
