How To: Start up a gas jet turbine go kart

Start up a gas jet turbine go kart

A reasonably in depth Talk & Walk around and eventual start up and run of my DIY Jet Turbine Go Kart. Please excuse my mistake when I stupidly say that Jet engines don't 'Squeeze' the air - of course they 'squeeze' the air !! The compressor wheel within the turbocharger see's to that! - What was I thinking of ?? Oh, AND the fact I refer to the OIL pump as a FUEL pump as well - what a chump. Also, the tacho didn't seem to want to work correctly, It wouldn't read over 5000RPM for some reason - I need to look at it - Flat out the engine will be spinning at around 86000RPM - Idle is 22000RPM. One day I will actually get to sit in and run this thing along a track! The metal gate frame was HOT to touch after it was finished.
