Hi Peter

RCS recommends using an electric smoke pump instead of taping the case. Not exactly sure of the reasons why, but my guess is because without a reed block assembly, there is no convenient place to do it without removing engine backplate and rotary disc assembly.

My advise would be to use an electric one. Thats what I plan on doing.
