Found this interesting video of a radial engine made of 5 Sure Starts with a custom manifold choke tube throttle.

Location found: RC Groups, Discussion Vintage Glow Engines, Post# 40262839



I've run engines inside my garage with door closed during winter. Had a Castor smoke filled room that needed airing out by opening the garage door. I like the comment someone made about this.
Don't know if I'd brave doing this next to a load of unwashed laundry in a laundry room. What? Paranoid Shh Beer Cheers

If he ain't married, that's great. If he is, he's got a bigger set than I by running it in the laundry room as you mentioned!

I bet he is married. If he was single he would do his own laundry. Then, there would be no way in hell he would get the laundry and the rest of the laundry room all castor slobified. I am speaking as a single man.

Personally I think he is probably a bachelor or a divorcee. Reason why I say this is that he probably figures that any whiff of glow fuel exhaust can be washed off dirty laundry. Also, he probably figures he can just open windows afterwards to clear the glow fuel exhaust fog. The laundry room is too small to run an engine in without it becoming very smoky quickly.

Even running a small engine, I find the garage filled with glow exhaust smoke. Reason is I use the same size bench run tank, a 1 ounce. Only difference is that a larger engine will burn through that 1 ounce faster than a smaller engine. End result is the same amount of glow exhaust.

Someone else posted another video on Facebook of a 5 cylinder radial Cox he created, but his layout was a single crankcase.

I think you're right NEW222. You can see the oil fog from the engine starting to cloud the living room. I'd never run an engine in a living room, let alone anywhere in the house except for the garage, and that with the cars out.

Yup, I'm sure you got your Dad's attention, hopefully it wasn't with a belt. Doh! I've run my Testor McCoy .35 Red Head in the garage. It was loud but I had earmuffs on. One ounce of fuel put a lot of Castor smoke in the air during winter. I then opened the garage and back door to quickly air it out. I didn't want to coat the walls and objects in the garage with Castor mist. tongue
