    No Ron, I don't think squishing the charge out towards the cylinder wall is any good! You did the right thing.

    Thanks Daniel, I appreciate the reply. I'm probably dealing with two adjustments. Head clearance and head volume. Because I've only used my gauge on flat top piston motors I've put the gauge in the head button and set the button on a piece of glass to set the gauge to zero. I can see how putting the button on the top of the piston will work better on dome/dish pistons. It was really getting confusing for me when my pistons have a dome and a dish. Not easy to get the volume right in those motors.

    Thanks again, Ron

    ps. Nice work by the way.

    Thanks Martin. it wasn't my idea though on the DD .21 button. I believe Marty told me you had something to do with figuring that out.

    You Would be Very Surprised on how good/accurate they are from Harbor Freight.

    I have Digital dial and micrometers and they were in tolerance from the manufacture and have been for a couple of years.

    I calibrated these on our gauge blocks and on our supermicrometer

    Daniel,

    I'll take one of the digital ones when you get one assembled.

    PM me with your paypal info.

    Thanks,

    I am building three standard nitro glow digitals for Duke, Steve and Ken now. And a standard nitro glow analogue for Chris(by pm).

    I may be able to do the turbo version. I am looking into it now for you guy's but they would only be completed units because they have to be assembled as a unit. The plunger has a extension made for it that has to fit the exact gauge your using and be aligned in the body so the extension floats smoothly through the threaded portion where the extension goes through. The gauge is pretty much dedicated to the unit once it is built.

    Let me know if you guy's are still interested. Guessing the price would be about the same $70 plus the shipping.

    I was able to make a standard glow plug style with a adapter for the turbo head.

    Check it out.

    The price on this complete assembly with adapter so you can use it with both types is $100 shipped in the U.S.
