Meager with interest or is it bad with knowledge? For a couple of months ago, I threw out a question of what is shown in the picture. However, no response except from DK Steamer, who at the request of me not reveal their knowledge. The subject of the picture is a starter from an early Mobile or Locomobile. It put the entire gadget in the fireplace at home, then they went out and pumped fuel pressure on his steam carriage. Then you had to be quick, without burning itself ran it out to the car stuck in the ignition device in the burner released on gasoline then evaporated . Gasoline vapors ignited in an appropriate manner, for example, a gasoline-soaked rag that was lit and stopped into the burner. No wonder many ångvagnar burned up .... Today is not using this precarious start method, it is easier to ignite with a gas flame.
I am a self-taught steam car engineer whose interest is in the renovation, repairs and manufacturing of steam car parts....
