Yep. Pressure feed usually cuts out with no great variation at end of run, one reason Jim Walker liked using it.
The Fireball plans explain how to make a balloon tank with a toy balloon from the 5 and 10 cent store, and the Walker pressure regulator was the ultimate add on- they still show up on eBay and elsewhere today.
