On the road again! Wood power finaly…
Installed the new gas hose, gas mixer, and reinforced the litle legs that hold the alubox on the towbar a bit. And!
I put out the grate from the firetube. Thats right, no grate at all anymore. This means full reduction volume, and no chance of sliping char.
It was not fun standing on -10c all day, holding freezing tools, but when l went for a test drive it was all worth it.
Hadnt had so much fun in a long time.
I heated the gasifier with the new fan (12v vacuum cleaner) and started the engine with no problems.
With the help of my OBDII scaner l set the a/f ratio to stechiometric (important to say-with gasoline hose off the injectors!) and played a bit with it.
The most important observation is as soon as l plugged back the gasoline hose (with fuelpump off) the a/f ratio jumped and rpm fall. This shows gasoline does indeed get sucked a considerable amount eaven if not in idle.
The drive was a joy. I didnt had to touch the gasmixer command one time, good from idle to full power.
The gas seems cooler and dryer. No condensate after about 10 miles. This comfirms makeing the reduction larger was a good thing.
