Re: hole burners (propane) - hole size, spacing, design?

I have been reading this thread and am thinking about this for my engines. You mentioned a venturi, where would that go or are the mig tips considered to be the venturi? Personally I think this has great possibilities. Chris

Hello All; I have a Sievert pro 88 torch . Recently the end that the burner tubes screw on got damaged. I was wondering if any of you can tell me the thread size. Hopefully I can repair it. Thanks in advance.

guage change

I have had someone ask about re-guaging a 7.25 Loco to 7.50. Has any ever done this. If so how difficult was it?
