Thank you so much for the tip! Wanted to test what you sayd above but my OBD2 connector looks like dead. Cheap chinese crap. I am waiting to get a new one.
It sure seems like it
On the O2 sensor, l think once you get the feel for it, there is no more need for it. I dont have lt, l dont miss it but it sure wuldnt hurt to have one.
There will be one in my next build thugh, , becouse my next build will be a woman DOW driver friendlyer system. Wife burns me a lot of dyno
Yes, the towel filter is in place of a hay filter, after the cooler.
There is a lot of pictures abd videos above in the topic on the ring of fire, but it is essentualy a air injection sistem that makea a curtain of air instead of jet, like clasical lmberts.
No, l have a WK style heat recovery firetube, insulated with s sort of refractory cement made of ash mixed with water glass. Next time l think l will go cheramic blanket way thugh…
On my first gasifier, l had s stright forward fixed grate, like JO. Now, the gas goes trugh the restriction, in a large reseroar of charcoal, where it first goes down some, then sideways and up. NO grate! Just the pot that holds in charcoal.
The advantige of this is l can never get constipated (the upstream of gas fluffs the charbed) diharea (loose charbed-there is enough volume to absorb the heat) and its harder to overpull the gasifier. The only thing that can happen is l run out of charcoal reserve at extremely hard pulls or the ash accumulates around the pot, restricting gasfliw, but this l plan to take care of by puting the cyclone lower, thus sucking all the dust bedore it can collect.
Yes, thats my last choice, if everything else fails. I prefer to try the cheap DIY solutions first, then buy if nessesery
Perhaps eaven a “powerboost chip” culd help, l suspect they mihgt advance timeing too.
l didnt drain the cooler condense in time so l pulled some trugh to the towel filter tonight. Engine still runs ok but l can feel more restriction on the gas flow as the towel is wet. I have about 300 miles on it, so l think lll pull it out, inspect, dry and make a video today.
