Citroen BX TGE


I made a pantone water doping assembly on a gasoline bx and I am only starting to test. I put the reactor in the muffler, it is a tube of 20mm outside and 16mm inside, length a little more than 350 mm with a central rod of 200mm and diameter 14mm.

I put a 19 Dellorto carburettor for the power supply, the water is heated in a "bowl" with a copper coil supplied by the coolant from the heating hoses.
The air supply to the carburettor is made with a copper pipe which runs the length of the exhaust.

I have some little problem:
- slow down when it swallows water it is irregular, I put the pantone gas inlet in place of the oil breather which means that the oil vapors are no longer sucked for the moment I would like to know if there is a risk for the engine ??.

- IN 40 KM I spent about 1/2 l of water is that too much ??? in fact I have no control over the flow of water the reactor swallows what it wants.

-the pipe which goes from the reactor to the inlet is a diameter of 10mm is it sufficient or does it need a large diameter ???

Here are my few questions for the moment.

I haven't noticed a drop in consumption for the moment but I don't have enough hindsight so we'll see, on the other hand is the engine undergoes a slag in the first use ???.

I also noticed a peculiar smell unknown to me.
I have a thermocouple on the reactor outlet pipe I have between 205 ° to 230 ° in use at 90-100k / h.

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this forum which allowed me to embark on this kind of editing and of course andré.

thank you all
