I claim:
1. In an internal combustion engine, a plu
rality of combustion cylinders and a supercharg

66 is'pivoted to piston 14 and to an arm 61 off
set laterally from rod 64, thereby providing a
definite advance of stroke of the supercharging
piston l4 relative to themain piston 12.

chamber I5.
This comprises a bypass 68, pro
der, a carburetor and an intake manifold con
necting it with the several supercharging cylin

85 tension of this spring and the action of this
valve are adjustable, by operating an adjusting
nut 11, so that the valve will open to pass fuel

necting said rocker shaft’ with the carburetor
valve and its operating means, whereby to syn
chronize said valves and control manually in
unison the flow of fuel mixture to the several
supercharging cylinders and also therefrom to

chamber l5 with chamber 29, said bypass being
A control valve 85 is provided in each storage
chamber l5'for, de?nitely controlling the flow of
fuel therethru to 'the combustion cylinder II;
and means is further provided for synchronizing
the several control valves 85 of the several com
70 bustlon cylinders II with the control valve 25 on
the carburetor. This means preferably includes
a rocker shaft 88 mounted on brackets 81 on the
engine and having an arm 86' connected to a link

manifold thereon and channel means connecting
the latter with the several supercharging cylin
ders, a tappet valve between each channel and
its cylinder, cam means operatively connected
for operating the two sets of tappet valves, a
manually operated rotary valve on the carburet
or and a rotary valve in each chamber, and
means connected with said several rotary cham
ber valves and with said rotary carburetor valve,
whereby to operate manually all of said rotary
valves in unison.
3. In an internal combustion engine, a plu
rality of combustion cylinders and a supercharg

supercharging cylinder into its chamber, a tap
pet valve leading from each chamber into its
combustion cylinder, a carburetor having a man
ually operated throttle valve and being adapted
to utilize gasolene and oil for fuel and provided
with a pair of supply pipes therefor, an intake
manifold on the carburetor and provided with
channels leading to the several supercharging
