If anyone is working on a similar idea please post or contact me. Thanks
Indeed, I could see that working with a stepped up idle speed and the jeep parked, why not use the engine to make compressed air to run tools, afterall it is basically an air compressor anyways. I just have a different use for the compressed air :-)
I was thinking about using a type of reed valve on the output of the compressor cylinders to eliminate any reverse flow and to smoothen out the pulse effect of the compressor cylinders. Could even replace the valves with one way reed style valves to reduce some of the valve train friction as I will no longer have a a power stroke per se.
Keep the comments coming, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks again....JoJotheTireMan
