How does one get such nice smoke rings? Do you do something special, or does it just naturally make rings with your particular exhaust setup?


Well, the exhaust pipe is 1 1/4 inch pipe from he head...I re directed it up with 2 90s then brought it up to a nice 3 dia x 12 inch iron pipe. once running and warm I add about a 1/4 oz. oil to my bean can of gas (6 oz gas :1/4-1/2 oz oil). I then cover the air intake with my hand to make for a poor mix...I leave the choke closed and make the engine run at full speed while I hold a greasy rag against the fly wheels to make it work a littel...POP O POP O POP O POP O... It works well but I do not think the rag part is all that smart...once I get something to run off a belt It should be nice.

Hope this helps...if it is not clear just let me know

A soda can is a little lightweight.
Any of you blacksmiths out there ever shoot an anvil?
I got a 125 pounder about 40 feet in the air!
That was in my younger days, don't think I would do that again!

How about a chili cook off in the "hopper"
or Cook a hot dog till it splits in the hopper!

I think it would be cool to set up a competition with a dyno to see who's engine is the closest to the factory rating in horsepower.
