    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.
    Smooth, like Keith Stone.

    RE: Do you have smoke on a twin

    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.
