Pretty much anything light that won't fly out the barrel will work to mix the fuel. Pennies were plentiful and available. I just can't use them shooting straight up.

How do you get the barrel to slide through the 1" couplers when you unscrew the union? I am working on a breech loading design similar to this, and with tension on the hose clamps, the couplings clamp themselves to the barrel.

My hose clamps aren't very tight.

If you want tighter hose clamps, just use steel 1" steel socket weld couplings, (McMaster), and cut slivers off the ends like here.
