I do something like Pat said above. I have 10' of 2 1/2 inch pvc pipe with an elbow and reducer on the bottom. I bunge this to a fence post or the leg of my ez-up shade tarp. I put the exhaust hose into the base and when it fires it blows perfect smoke rings that on a calm day climb at least 25 feet. It quiets the engine and draws great crowds. My initial idea was just to get the smoke above crowds. As for condensing oil, it just collects in the bottom pipe elbow and I wipe it up with a rag. Just another idea for ya.

I put a post on your other thread, but in case you missed it - just drill a 1/16" hole in the lowest point in your exhaust. Waste oil will bleed out the small hole, and you won't lose too much smoke.

Anyone have exhaust pictures they can share here, so I can get a visual? Especially the oil bleeding part. I appreciate it. I'll post this in the other thread as well.

The best thing to use it for is a Maytag wash machine. Nothing draws more attention then a gas engine wash machine washing some wash. These old wash machines are not to hard to find. You will heed to find one that matches the fuel tank on your engine. Craig's list is a good place to look.

Pinball: If you are interested in a can crusher, I have one I would part with. It is made with a hydraulic cylinder, and has an automatic feed (6 or 8 cans). PM me and we can talk about it.
