I made the intake 5/8" ID with a small lockwood type flare rounded back. The intake tapers from about 1" from the intake all the way to the CC. There is no spark plug, it starts up easy just by having the CC heated.

Eric wrote:When you have the fuel injector set up going through the side of the pipe like the Chinese design (I seriously wonder why they had the fuel port at that position unless it was supposed to be for liquid fuel), you are relying entirely on the incoming air to mix the gas, and a lot goes right out the intake and makes a big flame contributing squat to thrust.

The engine is made from 24 gauge stainless, with fuel injector weights 1 pound 1 ounce, without removable test stand. I will probably put this engine up on ebay once I start my pulsejet yard sale.

Mark V will be entirely tig welded, fusing the metal together and polishing the seam. The Mark III - IV are very carefully mig welded with the seams polished down to be level with the rest of the piece, giving the appearance that the engine is made from seamless tubing, I then take the CC / tailpipe as one piece and put it on the lathe and use 600 grain sand paper to regrain it all to one direction.
Let me get this straight, you want me to make parts thinner than 24 gauge stainless, and then you are going to oxy weld it.... without a henrob 2000.... At the moment I dont have anything thinner than 24 gauge, depending on how the tig welding goes I may buy some 26-27 gauge. Email me at my yahoo address ERJABE007@yahoo.com with exact dimensions of what you want. For some reason on my website my email on every page changed to ERJABE @ yahoo . net instead of .com
