What a fantastic looking unit you have , makes me wish we had kept our little crawler now .
If this is charcoal unit then as far as I am aware you have to stop engine to refill your hopper . but it will restart almost immediately once the lids back on and the air is sucked out of the hopper .
I am very surprised at the engine operating smoothly. This engine has made backfier gasoline. I can not adjust the spark advance has.
(No landmarks on the crankshaft pulley, this is no longer the original pulley, I think)
Coal was burned very quickly. is this normal?
Aproximately 20 liters of charcoal 25 in 30 minutes
Charcoal is made of spruce wood
I will post more pictures tomorrow
Thank you for your encouragement
Hi Trigaux looking at your charcoal it seems too big. Shrink it to nothing bigger then 3/4" no smaller then 1/8th with a good cross section of all sizes. I think you are getting too much CO2 escaping un converted hence the short run time beautiful build though
