o1 Tools.615 viewsI use 1/4" lexan and an insulin needle to check head volume. There's two small holes the size of the needle in the plate. Terry Keeley
o2 Setup.661 viewsThe needle's filled with alcohol, a little grease on the squish band seals the plate. I put a glow plug in the head and measure it too for a final value (plug vol. is about 0.01cc)Terry Keeley
o3 Bubble.731 viewsYou can slide the plate around a bit to get the last bit of air out, I usually check it twice.Terry Keeley
n-1 Noble switch762 viewsHere's the best way IMHO to prevent runaway boats due to switch failures.

The "old school" Noble switch is made for vibration and is double throw, triple pole, so it's like having 3 switches in one. Available from Pete Waters at Kraft Midwest, 248-486-4800. I use a spring from an OS carb on the Dubro pushrod to spring load it "on" and jam a piece of wood against it to hold it off, this way I can cover it with a waterproof boot.

Another way is to put the spring on the other side of the rod and hold it off with a clothespin.

Pete also told me if you unplug your battery pack between outings they'll be alot less of that green stuff around.
