ENGINE FUEL SYSTEM
8-1. General. Fuel
is supplied from the main fuel tank. Fuel
through the filter assembly by a fuel transfer pump. The fuel transfer pump
facilitates the flow of fuel from the tank to the fuel injection pump. The
mechanical-type pump is a conventional cam-driven diaphragm pump that mounts on
the engine block. The fuel injection pump distributes and delivers an accurately
metered amount of fuel to each injector nozzle in a properly timed relationship.
A flyball-type governor provides automatic control of the fuel charge in accord-
ance with the engine load at any given speed range within the minimum and
maximum speed settings. The fuel injector nozzles spray a metered amount of
fuel into each combustion chamber. Unused fuel is returned to the tank through
the fuel return line.
Fuel Tank, Lines, and Fittings.
The diesel fuel used in the engine for the Dynamotor-Welder is com-
bustible. Use caution when draining/filling fuel tank and working
