Yeah I would have to agree with you as that was my first thought as well, but with the stories of 100mpg carburetors when I was growing up to the internet stories of inventors having their equipment taken and prodded to be silent I thought it can't hurt to try it out. I recently hired this young man at where I work as a technician, turns out he's been interested in running a car on anything other than hydrocarbon fuels. He's also a gifted auto mechanic and is still going to school. So naturally we have teamed up.
Let me run this by you. We will shortly have a complete fuel injected 4 cyl Honda motor on a test stand. This will of course be our technology demonstator. I am building test combustion chamber using acrylic tubing with a small spark plug and a primary injector on one end. We are using a 5 gallon fuel tank with a built in high pressure fuel pump which we will use to atomize the water. We are removing one of the rectifiers off of the alternator and plan to try some piggy backing of the half wave rectified AC onto the high voltage output of an MSD coil putting out about 100kv. We haven't yet figured out how to control the pressure when and if the water vapor ignites.

:Sorry I took so long getting back to you, work is occupying way too much of
: my time. =)
: I see your point on the smaller wire diameter makes perfect sense. My
: original intention was to use the heavier gauge to get a stronger field.
: But from what I'm understanding is that I can achieve the same magnetic
: field by using more windings of a smaller gauge. Is that correct?
: Yes. The magnetic field is directy proportional to the number of turns
: times the current flowing through those turns. So, 10 amps thru 10 turns
: creates the same field at 1 amp through 100 turns.
: If you have time can you take a peek at the guy who posted his notes and
: schematics on his water powered 1978 V8 Camaro. It's at
: http://www.waterpoweredcar.com/1978camero.html and let me know what you
: think of his circuit. His piggy backing of a half wave rectified signal on
: top of the distributor output through relay contacts appears to be drawn
: I will have shortly two motors on test stands, one Honda 4 cylinder and 1
: 12A rotary motor for testing of several ideas we've read about. This one
: intrigues us the most. We would greatly appreciate your opinion on this.
: I looked at the site, and my impression is that it seems to be too good to
: be true... :^) The circuit seems to simply switch the output of the
: inverter to selected spark plug via relays triggered via a modified
: distributor. My take on the circuit is that it will not work as shown for
: a variety of reasons, even if the engine could indeed run on water (which
: I also am quite skeptical about). There will not be sufficient voltage to
: fire the plugs, but perhaps some electrolytic action is being proposed to
: generate O2 and H2. There seems to be nothing magical about the relays -
: looks like any 2PDT 12 volt relay would do the job. If it seems too good
: to believe, chances are it is...
: Thanks very much for your time.
: Good luck and best regards,
