Try his facebook page, you might have better luck.. I'm not saying it's on there ( as I don't do facebook), but you might be lucky.

Get the hola extension for your browser gets around all that regional nonsense https://hola.org

One of the tradesmen where I did my apprenticeship used to work for the RAF in Singapore and told us they used to set the mixture on merlins by measuring the length and judging the colour of the flame coming out of the header pipes when it was on the engine test stand !

There is a fellow that builds race Merlins for unlimited air racing, told me they just install Allison (most tractor pulling v12s are Allisons) connecting rods in the Merlin and turn up the boost.
How high during a race I asked, "not sure the boost indicator doesn't go that high".

I hate youtube another hour of my life I wont get back!
