Just do not all the “bad” things I have to modify on this donated horse!
J-O asks about “fingers” meaning the struts holding the flap!
There is a tin with perforated sides (6 rows on each side) to let in the air.
The tin is concentric with the threaded center-tube holding the “social box” in place.
The tin’s back end (facing the back-plate, removed for photo)
is split up to be elastic and semi-tight against the back plate.
This, to avoid air supporting the lighting fire near the backplate.
Through the cap-hole on the back-plate, a white spirit or denaturated spirit saturated paper towel is put in.
Starting a low fan-push, you light the towel, pushing out a flame.
Fast screwing on the cap and full blow on. The fire roars into the air-intake and if the silo lid is open, smoke starts to bellow out.
Closing the silo lid and lifting the distribution tube off the cyclone, puting a 0,5 m straight out-blow tube on the cyclone
sends the initial wet gas into the sky, disturbing no passers-by!
That’s the way to avoid public aggrevation…
3 – 4 minutes and the gas is lightable. A few minutes more and all yellowish components vanish.
The top-tube off the cyclone, distribution tube in place.
Then a stir in the silo lets you start and drive.
You have heard the tale of the shoemaker’s kids having the worst shoes in town?
That applies to my gas-mixing too! Sofar…
