Practical tips for mounting your first Pantone engine.
Assemble the other subassemblies of valve components below. The adapter plate input output thick steel 1 / 2 "below is only used on some engines like Tecumseh and OHV engines (see below).
Add a flared fitting male brass 1 / 2 "NPT / 1 / 2" for the air inlet on the adapter plate.
Some Briggs and Stratton engines generally have the threaded exhaust for an 1 / 2 tube, but the intake is on the other side of the engine, so you need a longer length of hose. It will also require a compression hose connector (fitting) or a piece of rubber hose with hose clamps to connect from the engine inlet to go to the bubbler hose.
Assemble the above pre-assemblies on the below reaction chamber being careful to install the stem 12 "inside and pointing away from the engine.
Take a copper pipe 10 3 / 4 "x 1 / 2" and solder a pipe adapter 1 / 4 "NPT - 1 / 2" at one end and a plug 1 / 2 "to another.
Drill a 1 / 16 "turn of 90 ° and drill again, and also another way in.
Take the other 1 / 4 adapter "NPT - 1 / 2" and cut the thin wall part to make a hollow nut to pass the pipe and file it smooth enough to put in the "Anti-Gel" (bubbler) can.
Take an antifreeze container of about 4 liters and drill a 1 / 2 "near the top of the pot through the cap as pictured.
Assemble the pieces together in the following order: pipe, fitting half 3 "x 1 / 4" hose connector 1 / 4 "short connection 3 / 4" ring hole in the pot, ring and nut cored and back pressure hose - optional connector half 3 "x 1 / 4" elbow 1 / 4 "short connection 3 / 4" ring hole in the pot cap, ring and welded pipe.
Réaliez an intake manifold / exhaust depending on the configuration of your mower.
Use 1 / 2 tube "for 10 CV or less (from 5 / 8 tube" and flare fits for 10 to 20 CV) with an 1 / 2 "spring tube bender and form a loop to achieve the intake manifold.
Slide the flare nuts at each end and then slide the flaring tool (make snares) so that the tube protrudes about 3 / 16 "flare ends.
Assemble all the parts on the engine and then add a 1 pipe support "to support the weight of the assembly.
Please note you might break the manifold of your engine if all the weight of the reactor rests above especially as the vibrations are as destructive!
Here you are prét started!
The first start
1) Fill the bubbler with pure gasoline to start without exceeding half the bubbler evaporator.
2) Ouveze the air valve output reactor half. You will see that it is this valve and the outlet valve bubbler that are most useful.
3) Open the outlet valve bubbler thoroughly.
4) Try to start. If it does not start after ten trials, increase the opening of the air valve output reactor (air mixing valve on the map). If it still does not, inject some gas directly through the valve.
5) When the engine has started, fumble and fun has to vary the various valves. You will see that the valves that have the most influence are valves bubbler output and output reactor (mixture of air).
6) Can Inject the exhaust gases but make sure that the deletion in the evaporator is not too large (it swells).
If you have water in the bubbler you can run the engine in completely closed circuit for a while (No exhaust gas then exits the engine).
We will explain to the page «Possible trials with this montage» how this is possible!
