built gun, can't make it work

Unread postAuthor: youngster » Mon Jul 11, 2005 3:57 pm

I built my gun, and I can't make it fire. My barrel is 4 ft and my chamber is 2 feet long. My ignition system is a flint spark for a lantern located at the bottom of the gun. What's the deal? Is my chamber to long? Please help me.

too much fuel, air the chamber out between attempts, and go from a small amount of fuel to a very large one, see when it fires best
