mini problems

Unread postAuthor: iamthewalrus » Wed May 25, 2005 6:10 pm

ok, ive finished my mini pill gun and its sparks every tim e, but i wont fire, i think my spark my be to weak, but it looks fine. i dont think im flooding the tank, i cant really put in any less. can a spark be to small, because my cap is less then a millimeter, prolly around half a milli., is that to small for a mini?

Try igniting it without the cap on, if it ignites you have too much if it dosnt you might have too little or there is a big leak.
