Nomadci The size of the flames are regulated by three things. First is the fuel....kerosene burns slower but gives longer flames, coleman fuel burns faster and gives brighter flames. I know you can use gasoline but it is a bit much for my taste. The second factor is the pressure from the pump (I used 7psi without a regulator) and the opening on the solenoid (it is adjustable for flow). The third factor is the momentary switch...the longer you stay on it the more flame....quick tap and quick burst...I'm hittin a show this weekend with the flames and will send some pics. I am in Riverdale right by the airport. The car was painted in Conyers and the airbags were done in Forest Park.


PSS There is a website that shows you how to change the COLOR of the flames but I don't know what it is right now...I'll look it up and let you know.

Oh yeah, for can use standard carb injectors or NOS injectors.

BuickLeSabre1960 What kind of injector should I use, and is there a difference in the look of the flame between gas and running a seperate kerosene tank? I don't want huge flames (about 10') and I want them to be the rolling red/orange. Where in Atl. do you live, I just moved from there a few months ago.

Nomadci Well it looks like your best bet would be coming from the bottom rear of the pipes. If you can angle them (injectors, plugs) slightly they won't be as visible. The more difficult option would be to come from the inside of the trunk which would involve cutting the trunk to expose the area of the pipes for the injector and the plugs. Either way you have some work ahead of you.

BuickLeSabre1960 ok, here it is

Thanks a lot for the pics...I need one more though...a pic from the bottom looking up so I can see the pipes in relation to the body and bumper.

BuickLeSabre1960 I'll get the pics. tomorrow. because of where the tips go in at on the car the pipes actually go in the corners of the trunk.

Nomadci If you can send me several pics of the rear exhaust from every available angle including inside the trunk, even though you may not be able to see them from the trunk......I'm assuming you want the hardware as concealed as possible. I'll send you some on fire pics in a couple days.

BuickLeSabre1960 I don't quite get what your saying about putting them in the pipes. Put the injector in the end of the pipe and run the connection into the trunk? thanx, I just got it a few months ago. Got any pics. of your car with the flamethrowers goin??
07-31-2004 03:23 PM
Nomadci The problem is the metal...the exhaust pipes become red hot after you hit the flame throwers a few times. Which is why it is highly recommended they be at the tips of the pipes. Given your setup could you put them on the inside of the pipes and make your connections through a fabrication in the trunk? By the way your car looks great!!
