Dood! get creative If I were going to do this, I would try to find a hand held pesticide or weedkiller sprayer with a metal can, put a glowplug through the bottom with a nice gasket or petroleum proof sealant and replumb the pickup tube in the metal resevoir so you are only sucking out the smoke you are generating. This way you dont have to worry about electric pumps and extra plumbing. Just make sure the sprayer you get has a high enough pressure to force the smoke through the whole engine. I would imagine 10psi is more than enough. Good luck
