    My problem, and yes it's a big problem, is my mind plans out better than it executes.

    I didn't even put this one on paper. I just built it.

    Well, we took her for a ride today. She surges at wide open throttle. I think it's because the fuel filter cap leaks. I'll try to seal that off first.

    The tunnel vent works just as I hoped it would too.

    DogCavalry I aim to misbehave.

    And fast enough the mosquitos don't bug you. I like seeing the water flow in the siphon. Science in action.

    I'll get a better video of that next time we go out. That bronze fitting works. I was shocked my theory actually came to fruition.

    Ran it again today. It seems we have the surge problem fixed. But, it still idles too high. Any ideas?
