Just found this while looking for something else...
Goes between the carburetor and intake manifold to "aid" mixing up the air/fuel mixture. Complete junk, but still fun to see.
No doubt it doubles your fuel mileage..........
Early self powered turbo charger!
Like right out of the J. C. Whitney catalog!
Jerry, You need a set of these Fan Flame spark plugs with a propeller to go with your intake accessory and you will really be supercharged!
You win! That's incredible. I wonder what happens when the little fan blade breaks off. (Nothing good)
Jerry, you keep the propeller on by inserting a cotter pin it seems.....Ha, at least that's how it looks.
Jerry, I guess when the fan fly's off the spark plug it shots out the tailpipe like a ninja star at those pesky tailgater's
Early James Bond device?
Cool spark plug, but very scary for pistons and cylinder walls! :-D
Figuring it would be easy to detect even a 1/2hp improvement on an 18hp engine, I made something similar to the Philis-Buster for my CitroŽn 2CV. The fuel consumption and power remained identical as far as any on-road testing was concerned. Big surprise.
Jay, you should start a separate thread for gimmick spark plugs, I'll bet there are some wild ones out there!
Eric, I have owned three 2CVs in my life, two in Europe and one here in the US. I am of the opinion that using the words "2CV" and "power" together makes no sense....
The 2CV's sound like the 1956 36Hp VW bug I had. I could never imagine driving it on the Autobahn or any 1966 or earlier VW's for that matter!
Nice to see the Fan Flame. They also made a 1/2" pipe thread plug.
Mark, this was my first one. Paris, 1968.
