I seem to recall that some one else tried that early on in this thread... Had the same problem where it acted more like a chimney and less like an air intake...

I think Bubba was the one that came up with the extended valve handle where the valve is down low but he attached a threaded rod to move the handle so you don't have to bend over (not a pretty picture) to adjust it...

Ya did good, it's all about learning, building, modifying, and repeating...
