Is using the fuel injector pump of an automotive diesel engine, for injecting fuel/oxidizer in a liquid fuel rocket motor (static), realistic and practicable.
The immediate advantage of using diesel as fuel as well as ready made injectors made for automotive engines seems very attractive. On the test stand the pump(s) can be driven by a small electric motor.
What are the minuses for such an arrangement?
Has anyone done it before along this line. Pointers to websites most appreciated.
