I plan to build several gasifiers this spring, if I can find the time and materials. What I need to know is what size to make the fire chamber so I have adequate heat to generate the gas that I will need. After I determine what size the fire chamber will be, then I can determine what outer tank to place it in. I need to know width and depth. Here are what I am going to consider powering with the Gasifier. … I doubt that one size of firebox would work for all of these, so please give me information for each - if possible. Thank you!
Here are the vehicles:
Minneapolis Moline Model U Farm Tractor with a 283.7 cubic inch engine. Rated at 40hp.
John Deere 70 Farm Tractor (propane powered) with a 6.2L engine, 50hp.
Massey Harris 44 Farm Tractor 4.3L 6cyl, basically 40hp.
1949 Studebaker 2R10 Pickup Truck 170 cubic inch, 85hp.
1963 Studebaker 3/4 Ton Pickup 289 V8 210hp.
Thank you so much for all of your help.
