Section C6 FUEL The 22litre diesel engine is fitted with a nozzle known as the Pintaux type which hasbeen developed primarily to give easy starting from coldA feature of this nozzle is that on cold startingit directsthe fuel spray through an auxiliary hole to the hottestzone of the combustion chamber In operation the pressure in the annulus builds upduring the pump delivery lifting the needle from itsseating and permitting a flow of fuel into the annulusbelow the seat from which the auxiliary hole leadsThe needle is extended below the seat to fit into largediameter pintle hole At startingspeeds the needle is not lifted sufficiently to clear thepintle hole and the bulk of the fuel is therefore discharged through the auxiliary or starting hole At normalrunning speeds when the pressure in the fuel system ishigher the needle is withdrawn from the pintle hole inthe normal manner A small proportion of fuel continues I I 1 9010 Fig C13 The CA V Pintaux nozzle C17 THE FUEL
