I'm thinking of trying something similar with a small bridge of copper tubing with wicking material across a void like that with a small hole or two in it..just enough to keep a small flame going..drill a hole on each side in the vortex the size of the copper tubing so the ends of the copper tube sit down to the bottom of the fuel supply well.JB weld around the ends as they go into the body to seal those up.That should provide a self-sufficient burner for the upper end and the copper tube ends will help heat the fuel earlier and speed up the bloom a little.
I think the important factor will be to get it at the right height that it fires up the stove but doesn't also provide more jets for escape of fuel.If the ends of the copper tube go to the bottom of the fuel supply below the top of the liquid fuel level,I would think it should work well.
Just a pre burner for your afterburner.. :lol:
