Default Do you have smoke on a twin

If you do, did you run a Y with a tube to each muffler, or just run a single line to one muffler?

Y-connection so each tube goes into a muffler.

Both. More smoke, the better.

On my DLE-170 I was considering 2 seperate tanks, pumps and lines, one for each cylinder. But after much thought, I went with the same Y arrangement I have on my 35% Godfrey Extra 330. It lays down enough smoke to make any pilot smile.

I actually run 2 check valves, one on each side of the Y. Do you get better results running a single check?
I did 2 just thinking that 1 may be a point of restriction.

GSG I would expect it to work the same. I just went with a single check valve because that is what I had seen others do. Lots of roads lead to the same city LOL

Trixie,
I haven't finished plumbing my new 40% project yet. Maybe I'll try the single. One less thing to go wrong I suppose.

Y connector with one pump on a DLE-111 in a 1/3 330L. Works great.

Same as the rest, Y with single check valve. Still gets the tail real dirty!
