In the later part of WWII, the German fuel production was greatly reduced by allied bombing and the German aircraft had to make do with 90 octane av gas whereas the Allies had 150 octane.

Re: Water Injection Cooling #2

The use of water or water/alcohol to suppress detonation in aircraft engines goes back a long way. It is only used at wide open throttle for a limited time. Your system will inject water any time that vacuum is present at the port. Check with a vacuum guage to see if vacuum exists at the port you ar...

Same Caliber Carbine

When in Viet Nam and flying an O1E Birdog, I, like many others, did no...

Re: Drive Train knock

Check to see that the sidecar driveshaft is in phase--both end yokes should be in the same plane. If it is out of phase, the universals will accelerate and slow down with each rotation instead of remaining relativly smooth in rotation. That will cause the sidecar stub axle splines to hammer in the w...

Re: My JD Squared Model 32 made it!!

About 5 years ago I purchased a tube bending kit on Ebay from China for $100. The crate it came in weighed 90#, so it is substantial and ranges from 1/2" to 1" in 1/8" increments. each increment has it's own diameter roller and 270 degree die. I mostly used 1/2" steel tubing to make a variety of tai...

Re: Muzzleloaders, need some advice: .32 caplock or .45 flinter rifle?

.32 will foul the barrel quickly. Go .45 or larger. A bonus is .45 is legal for deer in most states--has a higher resale value. I have a custom squirrel rifle I built with Dixie Gunworks components in the 70's. 30" Douglas gain twist barrel in .36, Air hardened tool steel Bedford style lock with dou...
