Long story short...Xavier got the girl.
The rest of the story doesn't matter.

He darn sure did , and her pappy's gator wound up as a pair of shoes and a belt for the wedding that was stiched up by feller that he met on Ellis Island,  Bianchi I think was his name.  Her pappy told old Xavier,  let's see if you can roll with this old boy like you did with my daughter.  Well, when old Xavier kicked the gator's butt, Pappy kinda took a liken to the old boy and I think they went on to start Johnston and Murphy  :shrug:?

I use meths burners for some of my hot air engines, and I too found out about having to put in a vent hole, but that too has it's trap, if the tank on the burner gets too hot, the vapor comes out the vent and ignites with a quite impressive flame.

Never choke an i.c. engine  running Naptha gas when trying to start it, then pull the sparkplug and lay it on the block while turning the engine over to check for spark. It is amazing how exciting it gets, and how quickly!!! Thank God for handy fire extinguishers.----Brian
