No it's not what you thought when you clicked on the thread title :LittleDevil:

Just playing with testing the recently completed Stuart Simplex replica, didn't quite manage the 1800rpm that I did with the compressor ;)

That reminds me of the "Breathalyzer" competition I set up in the fuel cell lab for "Bring your kids to work Day" one year. Hydrogen in one side and a tube to blow into for the air supply. The goal was to get the current through a small fixed load as high as possible. One Dad was so competitive he almost passed out trying to beat his kid.
Regards,
Ron

Well, you SAY it's not what we thought, but I would still like to see you hold a match to the exhaust to prove it.

Runs freely and smoothly on the spirit-fired boiler!
