Can anyone tell me where i might find plans for a valve less
pulse jet engine, with a thrust of about 80 to 100lbs, i want
to use it to power a novel gocart. i want to use gas as the
fuel if possible.

After watching the Junkyards Wars episode where they built one of these and reading online I thought this was a dangerous enough concept. But with gasoline instead of propane so now you need to atomize the fuel properly to add yet another level of complexity - wow. You sir, are one ambitious guy. I would take the lazy way out and get a salvage motorcycle motor and call it a day. :smile:

Thanks everyone,
I plan to start with one engine, but if that is to slow i may use two, bolted
to a stock kart, and hopefully kick up a rumpus at the local drag strip.
any one have fire proof overalls spare?
