Remember my post:  "P3D Articles you can read"?  

On page 11 of  1996 Amsat Proceedings: "Phase 3D Update" edited by Dick
Daniels, is found Figure 8 "Propusion System Block Diagram" which shows
every pipe, valve and tank for both the 400N engine and the arc-jet!  Don't
you wish you had a copy?  Maybe someone with a scanner will make jpeg copy
to send you.  Maybe Amsat or ARRL still has the proceeding available.
