Thank you so much for your good work. I just noticed that the diagram is missing the 1" gate valve between the muffler and the air intake for the EGR. Also, we have not included the vernier cable to the distributor for adjusting ignition timing.
When refilling a hot reactor barrel/hopper use caution. Open the lid away from face and Ignite the gas in the hopper with a torch if it does not spontaneously puff.
Close the air mixing valve, if open.
Adjust timing to 10* BTC with vernier cable to distributor.
Open valve on front nozzle opening (water misting side).
Remove nozzle cap and spark arrestor from rear nozzle opening.
Use poker to clean clinkers and clear nozzle.
Open EGR 1 1/2 turns from closed.
Set 3 way valve to conduct gas directly from reactor to flare.
Remove flare cap and turn on blower,
Ignite charcoal (squirt a flammable liquid into nozzle and follow with torch, or ignite with a kerosene soaked wick, etc.)
When charcoal ignites, reattach spark arrestor to rear nozzle opening.
Ignite flare and adjust blower speed to give sustained clean flare.
Turn 3 way valve to pull gas through system and reignite flare.
Set water mist to 2 drops per second.
Extinguish flare by capping and turning blower off.
Crank engine while opening air mixing valve approximately 2 turns.
When engine fires, fine tune mixing valve for smooth running at medium throttle (approximately 2 1/2 turns open).
Advance ignition timing for maximum RPM at steady medium throttle.
Increase water mist under load for maximum power/speed. Reduce when not under load.
Adjust ignition timing under load for maximum power/speed.
When stopping, close air mixing valve 1/2 turn in order to maintain low RPM idle.
Turn off water mist.
Close air mixing valve.
Close valve on front nozzle opening (water misting side).
Place nozzle cap on rear nozzle opening (ignition/clean-out side).
Close EGR valve.
