Remember that you have to fit a battery in later. You should have your coil and air compressor wiring coming out the back of the bottom PVC pipe. Depending upon where your fuel tank is mounted, now might be a good time to install it. Make sure you have a way to fill it. Step 15: Construction— Part 13 Install the gauge, switch, primer bulb, and, if used, piezo igniter. It may be easier to wire up the switch before installing it. The same goes for the gauge and primer bulb. Step 16: Construction— Part 14 Due to how different the parts you may be using are, you’re on your own on this step.

The paperclip on the inside keeps them from falling down into the rocket later on, and you’ll be able to dig them out with the launcher (built in the next step) if needed. I placed a golf tee under them so they wouldn’t fall back through. I had to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to get the paperclips forced through the holes further down the neck, but that will keep it from falling out. If you need to replace the rubber bands later, it’s probably just best to also replace that paperclip.

When it is fired, the pressure will well exceed 50 PSI and the bottle will release. Do not glue the bottle on the pipe! If the bottle is too tight, it may explode when fired. If the bottle does explode, most of the time, it just blows the front of the bottle off with a loud bang. If it fails to fire, do not get in front of the barrel. Wait a few minutes, unscrew the back, and remove the bottle. Step 26: Fire! Make sure there is no bottle on the launcher. Fill the gas tank by turning it upside down, putting the filling hose in gas, and pumping the primer bulb until all the air is out of the line and gas starts to run out of the copper tube.
