Dave. Maybe, as a last choice, you could see if Dub could install one of his bladders in your tank?
Just thinking. Since the "tank" doesn't actually hold the fuel (the bladder does) maybe you could...

Dave,
Have you checked Dub Jett @ http://jettengineering.com/ He is currently reworking his web site, but you can call him. He has a full line of Jett Bubbless tanks. It is possible to "roll your...

MJD, Thanks for the update on Perry Pumps. I Had not seen the VP-30 and 40 series pumps before. I guess I'm still living in the 70's

I believe there is some misinformation on the Perry Pump, and Perry Pump Carburetors. The original Perry Pump is an oscillator pump. It works on vibration. There is also a Perry Pump that replaces...

The censors didn't like the adjective I used to describe a mild mannered kitty cat. I hope I didn't offend anyone?

The carburetor I used on my SS Nelson (Q-500/Q-40) is an OS .60 "7M" Dave Shadel cut it so it would fit the crankcase. It measures .370" with a thin sleeve in the bore. The biggest problem is you...

Well my bad! I thought the picture was of your engines. Your engine is even more interesting. It's definitely not a Formula 1 engine, and I've used up a lot of computer "type" guessing what you have....

Nope, Mufflers were never allowed in F-1 because it would have given a boost, and then everyone would have had to have one to be competitive. Do you know for sure that the engine has a carburetor...

Q-40 was developed as a replacement for 15 size Quarter Midget, which at the time had become a regional event. Formula-1 was in decline also, at the time, and Q-40 replaced it too. So it wasn't a...

Smokn, It will run with a straight mini pipe, but it will require high pressure, like crankcase pressure, or bladder pressure. Muffler pressure won't be sufficient. And yes that is how they were run...

Smokn, C-pig got back to you before I could. Tuesday nights we fly indoor here in Smyrna. So that's why he beat me to the punch. His answer is about as clear as it can get. But the key to your...

Smokn, Yes that looks like what you have. Probably an old F-1 engine, but it could also be an early FAI engine. Since I never owned any of them, this is just my best educated guess. If anyone knows...
