Jet engine home made DIY with after burner

I wheeled my jet out for a clean, check and test run after being in storage for 4 years and still running like the day it was built The after burner used 500ml of kerosine in around 23 seconds ! Tech stuff for those that are interested....... The afterburner is made from a centre exhaust resonator out of a Mazda 3. Ignition is by a walter high energy igniter feeding two standard auto plugs. (the ticking heard at the start) A early Volvo mechanical fuel injection pump ( K jet-tronic) feeds 3 mirage fighter jet fuel atomisers. The turbine engine is based on a old Ford laser plain bearing turbo using LPG in a simple yet reliable combustion. Injection is through a crossed drilled m6 bolt head - I have a liquid fuel combustor but the gas is just so easy to use. The digital instruments from the top are: RPM,EGT and Oil temp. Compressor and oil temp are lower right. The whole engine is fail safe , fuel is cut if any limits are exceeded. The RPM uses a Banner brand fibre optic sensor feeding a frequency counter. The reading is taken from the compressor nut. The test frame was originally designed to supply a truck turbo based engine but marriage, house, kids saw an end to building jets Thanks for watching !
