Thanks much. We shall see what the Lord wills for me and Elektra.
One important thing I need to do to that Web page is get a big warning box on there about welding galvanized / coated steel. That stuff is very nasty! I really had to be careful tonight, as there was no breeze at all while I was working. But, that part is finished -- the test stand will be a snap compared to what went into the engine.
Hope you enjoyed the welding shots at that new link.

What i mean by this is get it going as hard as it will, self sustaining. While running, and hot, give the intake a sudden blast of air (as high pressure and volume as you can). At the same time crank the gas up a bit, then let it sustain at this new level. I can do it about 5 times with mine, and at a guess, i get about twice the thrust and heat level than at the highest throttle position that it would self sustain at originaly.
My theory on this is that all of my current engines have undersized intakes. By doing this to them it induces a lower intake phase pressure, and therefor suck more air, and will hence tollerate more fuel!
