Default Video?

Hello Harry, guys.

I just got a (sorta grainy) video clip about 40 sec. long of my Talyor engine running and was wondering if it was acceptable to put it up here? I don't have a web page to keep it on so I couldn't link to it and (if it is acceptable) how could i upload a video clip from my hard drive? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Jeb

This is something that I am working on for the new photo gallery, but I still have a bug or two to work on so that .wmv and .avi files will upload.

I am using MGI VideoWave on my own system and I find that the output files are either too big (1MB and up) or too small (300K and down) without much control over sizes.

Be assured that this is a feature that I want added to SmokStak.

That was posted of Jebaroni. The Maytag next to it is a model 92. Does sound good.

Looks good. Yeah, that little Maytag 92 was the first engine I ever restored and I think it came out pretty good. The big engine running is my 1931 Taylor vacuume engine and that's almost as slow as I can get it to run. I'll try and snap a picture of a little adjustment jig I made to fiddle with the timing while you adjust the governor with the engine running. I know I had a dickens of a time trying to get the timing right so this may help somebody else.

I can't see the video, I get: "Windows Media Player cannot find the specified file. Be sure the path is typed correctly. If it is, the file does not exist at the specified location, or the computer where the file is stored is offline."

I suspect that this is happening for me (Win98SE, WMPlayer 9.00) is that the name of the file has a space in it... "Picture 081.avi". When looking for the file, it may think that the filename ends at the space.

Well, that's not it, as the other "Challenge" video posted in this thread has no space in the file name, and I still can't play it. Hmm... I need to look into it more.

Got it! I now see Taylor video, and have sound. I needed to do two things:
1) In Windows Media Player 9, Tools->Options, Player tab- I had to check "Connect to the internet"
2) I had to allow the player to access the internet through my firewall.

Nice video! Are you running it with both of the vacuum ports completely sealed off (pipe & caps)?

NO, when I got it, there was a standpipe sticking straight up (pressure) that has the cap on it to keep rain out. The lower port (suction) had a short nipple on it with an elbow and is open. You can hear it go "whoosh whoosh whoosh" as the engine runs and can bog the engine down a bit if you put your finger in the hole and make the engine work. I tried to make my own little diaphragm pump to work off of the vaccum and used a couple check valves to try and get it to pump water, but it was too much drag on the engine. Oh well. Maybe i'll just put a little "whirlygig" in front of it and let it be turned by the wind from the port! LOL

BTW, here's a picture of my "jig" for adjusting the timing while the engine is running. Loosen the latch clamp bolt after snugging the long bolt on the jig up against it, crank the engine and turn the bolt in or out to fiddle with timing. Simple, but it works and saved me a lot of headache.
