I have done a few dozen venturis. The stunt grunts like them with a fairly small bore. I made some needle valves too. Very time consuming with all the parts. I used 2mm pushrods and made a threaded...

You have some great guidance here. In Toronto, you may want to phone AJ Hobbies. Jack would know a bit or at least give a few ideas for where to get ether or find someone who knows.

The guys here use the ground cover mat for gardening and cut it into strips. I have seen red and black. Not sure where the red comes from. They use a jute type string.

I think some guys tried it with a hot plug, and had to leave the battery hooked up. They may have been using the E85 which uses 15% gasoline. A turbo plug head has a better seal and may help out a...

I always heard the old type is what to use, undiluted, and I have used that. It is green, not the Dexcool Chevy stuff. Not the new OAT or HOAT stuff for sure. I don't use it any more though, just...

You may be able to tap a 4:40 out to a 5:40 if you can find something close. Or use a rivet? Not knowing the application.

Actually I was just thinking about a Chickenhopper tank. Maybe you could put a tank between the motor and tank. Like a large capacity filter, if on suction.
