Sided top. 29 A POWER PRIMER I HE fuel system starts with the gasoline tank. We must have a supply of fuel in that. Then we have to get the gasoline from the tank to the carburetor. We ordinarily have only one carburetor for all the cylinders. The fuel pump gets the fuel there. It sucks the gasoline through a metal tube from the tank and forces it into the float chamber of the carburetor. This is a sort of store room for the fuel. It gets its name from the float in it, which floats on top of the gasoline and closes a valve when the gasoline reaches the proper level.

Have another problem when we add a supercharger. This charger than We is The detonation. effect of a supercharger is much the same as raising the compression ratio of the engine. Compressing the mixture in the supercharger makes it hotter. There is more mixture in the cylinder so it will be squeezed harder by the piston. Thereif we are not careful, we will have severe knocking. We must not raise the pressure too much with the supercharger. That is why high octane gasoline is so valuable in aviation.

This is called the ground. For the secondary circuit we go back to the coil. The high voltage electricity starts there, in the winding of thousands of turns of small wire. To get this to the proper spark plug at the proper time, we have the distributor. This is a rotary switch. We might liken it to a clock a clock with only one hand and with cuit. This is by a cam.
