Make-shift Regulator

Unread postAuthor: v3ngence » Fri Apr 15, 2005 6:27 pm

Well I found out that the problem is the mix, and I'm pretty sure my meter pipe is a bit too big because after I mix it it won't go, but then i blow a bit in the chamber and BOOM. I looked at regulators because rite now all my injection system is, is the meter pipe and 2 valves. The reg's I looked at wer e like $40 which is more than I'd want to spend. I had an idea to put something like a pencil in the meter pipe so not as much propane can get in. Any ideas on this or if you think it will work?

im not 100% on this, but i think the pencil would collect fule that sticks to it and a build up would like clog the pipe. but im not sure, other then that it sounds good to me.

also you should have put this post in the other post it goes with instead of spliting um, confuses ppl who havent read both.

Pretty good idea but like walurus said it might get "gummed" up. And what do you mean by regulator?

i think he is getting to much fuel in the chamber at once, so he's goign to use a pencil to restrict flow, he just calls that a regulator.

you can get regulators from 15-20 bucks at different places, just make sure its NOT a FLOW regulator, you need a pressure regulator
