This mornings crop of things to discus ? ----  wow.  . This geezer gets up 0500
and today the first thing on the telly was " Edison the Man "  ---the CNN news just
had to wait.  ----- My little "Menlo" is right below my feet.

Yes James Hansen  I got my eyes peeled for a film about Tesla.

Water injection as it is used on Gas and Diesels ---is a proven way to get more power
from Engines and or Fuel.   Many Aircraft engines have water injection for more power.
And many Car engines have injection for better mileage.

I had a Texas  Ford V8 flathead  1942  with waterbath intake filter. Worked fine.

This year I am going to experiment on a 1.5L NA.       Water ingestion is of most
interest to the  Power Generator gang.   Use distilled water.

There you go Mark Shepherd ----I am doing it.

Remember fellas your Menlo can be the kitchen the loft the cellar  anywhere really.The "IDEA"
is what is important. 

Watching the Hollywood version of Edison "Synchronizing" two DC generators was painful.
That was a LOT of commutation flashover.

And  Val Christian you were right in the first place ---your first VW engine makes for one hell of a "NIFTY" standby set.   Heat and El. On those frosty winter days when the grid lets you down.
And simple to make.
The "airhead" is better but then we are talking about what to do with that old VW diesel.

Something about steam expanding more than the loss in volumt due 
to the heat it takes to make it or something along that thought.  

 Very important thought --- too much water is counter productive.
