oh i see, so basically both the chamber and the propane meter would have some pressure in them, and then like after you fire, would you open 2 to kinda "push" some of the spent gasses out? Obviously it probably won't fully push them out, but it would help right? And you have to get the 15 PSI out of the meter.

Thanks noname for your patience, no hard feelings?

After I fire, the meter is still pressurized, so I just open "2", then pump 2 or 3 times to make sure all the fumes are out of the chamber. Then I put in a new burst disc, fuel the gun, and fire again.
No hard feelings, all this pressurized fuel mixture crap confused me too, before I built one.
