Abstract

A DIAGRAMMATIC layout of the main fuel system can be seen in fig. 14. Fuel from the tank is fed through a low pressure filter to the main fuel pump. This pushes the fuel through to the governor and throttle valve (integral with the governor). From the throttle valve the fuel passes through a non‐return valve into the burner ring. This non‐return valve prevents fuel leakage when the engine is shut down.
