If anyone has an extra flowmeter they would like to sell I would be interested​. Either a propane or Boris design in good working order is fine.
Thank you,
Brian Neumann

 

I BOUGHT ONE AND I AM NO LONGER LOOKING. THANKS!

Garry Geiselman had a Gen 2 and a Gen 3 for sale cheap at the Nats, Not sure if he sold them or not?

I have a top shelf propane job I will sell you for $25 plus shipping. My advice is to get a Boris meter though. The best thing I have found is to get  an Air Density meter and use it in conjunction with the Boris Meter

Thanks for the advice mike! Is there any disadvantages to the gen 2 or 3 boris meters compared to the gen 4? I am only going to be using it on 12 and 20 size nitro engines.

I have both. The latest versions have 2 air pumps and they have different settings for the same tune. For small motors you would think that a single pump would be fine but I don't know that for sure. I only race scale nitro boats and I'm sure there are plenty of guys on here that would have a good answer for you.

 

The other advantage of the Boris meter is they are a LOT smaller than the old propane jobs and you don't have to pack extra gas cylinders around.

I appreciate all the info Mike. I will hold out for now and see if I can find a Boris flowmeter. But if nothing pans out I may take you up on your propane flowmeter. Are there any reasonably priced air density meters that work well?

do a search on AutoDens all one word from the App Store or Google Play.  Mine was free a couple years back.

Mine is an old Hillborn meter that I used to decide what carb jets to use and also set the timing back in the 70's/80's in my race cars.

Brian, I have a Boris Flow meter, I believe it is a Gen II, 1 pump.  It doesn't need any adjustment.  It also has a tap to use an external sphygmomanometer.  Includes the digital sphygmomanometer in the picture and the charger & voltage checker.  The Boris charger takes forever to charge the battery so I always used my lipo charger.  You get 1st dibs on it.  $135.00 shipped in the lower 48.

You won't be disappointed with a Boris meter.
