For the most part I learned what I needed to learn on this last test. I now need to build a proper fuel delivery manifold that will allow me to adjust the amount of fuel being delivered at certain parts of the throttle cycle. If all goes well I will have a two stage fuel delivery system that will bump up the fuel flow when needed. This proposed system should save fuel and allow the engine a little more throttle control opposed to a fixed fuel flow system.
Oh, I will also need to build a heat shield for the rear tire ;oP It is pretty clear that the burner duct will get super hot during extended runs. Other than that I am pretty excited to see the burner get one step closer to completion. A big chunk of the work is already finished with only a few details left to sort out. Hopefully this new afterburner will propel the GRV-2 to new speeds. I guess we will have to wait and see :0)
Please join me again for the next installment of the GRV-2 jet bike project!!!
