- Phil's Viper C201 Test Runs.

3MB Windows Media
We had no idea as to what positions the throttle and HP cock levers should be. Although we have to say thanks to Grant in Australia for some helpful tips.

3.90MB Windows Media
This run we actually worked it all out, including the electronic HP cock, unfortunately, It was just after this run that the starter motor drive shaft sheared, no more runs today.

- Richard Staveley's Rolls Royce Viper 203.


16MB Windows Media

I ran the engine on paraffin as all the fuel system is nearly identical to the 102 its just not got a rate reset valve, they just used Avgas because the Shacleton's Griffon engines where running on it and it saved having separate fuel tanks just for the viper engines. They had a 'suck it and see attitude' to whether the fuel pump on the Viper engine would cope with the very little lubrication when using Avgas.

Richard also found this interesting video, describing the early years of the Gas Turbine. Some interesting references to Turbin's? I always thought Indian's wore these.

Full Power Run!
   
We were lucky with the day that we choose, the sun was shining and although it was windy first thing in the morning, it settled down to a nice cool breeze. This pic was taken by phil (support team) en-route.

A nice view of the track from the pits. The maintenance track to the right was also pretty handy.
I gave Roland a run up the track and I think he was impressed, although my video camera did go missing afterwards. These sorts of days are always a toss up between actually using the vehicles and getting some good video and pictures of them.

   
A picture of me trying to set up a remote camera on Ian's Jet Kart, whilst Paul goes through some pre running checks. Of course we are both being supervised by Graham to the right.

Kart's fueled up and ready to go, Ian in the hot seat.
Phil supporting the fathers for justice organisation, note the broken window, I bet the radio's gone missing!
   
Phil's gay mate Roland about to shake one off on Paul's car!
A quick photo shoot at the end of the day, with Ian, myself and the Jets.
Cant beat a rear view!

- Phil's first proper run of his newly purchased Jet Powered Sinclair C5
.


5.72MB Windows Media

Unfortunately after a flame out, Phil tried to restart the JFS100 without using the starter and relying on
turbine momentum alone, this resulted in high turbine temperatures and a burned out turbine wheel.
Not all doom and gloom, as there is a new turbine wheel and shaft on its way from the States!

Update ! Removal and replacement of turbine shaft.

1st run up after rebuild.
EGT never exceeded 650 deg C.
A bit smoky, seals yet to bed in (we hope).

Phil legs it and poops himself at the same time. Also a very smoky start form the oil left in the combuster from the previous run/ shut down.

Seals starting to bed in.
