The operation of the Yinvention will vnow be
40 briefly described. When the automobile is run
ning'at a low speed, which may be up to ten miles
connections ~at I4, I5 permit some> angular move
per hour, the valve portion 22 engages the seat
ment so that'the angle of the casing can be ad
23y to close the latter so that the combustible f
mixturefor the motor is as determined by- the
withinthe bore ofthe conduit casing I6 so as to 45 carburetor. This closing action is caused' by grav-ity and suction overcoming the pull of the pro
admita l.slight Vamountpffair upon unseating
peller I8. As the speed increases the valve I'I
from the ,ivalve 'seat ‘23 Íthrough theírnain' valve
mayV move to the position shown in Fig. 2, in
opening >23’. 1 So soon, however, as the valve mem
which' the valve seat 23 is open, and some air
loer.'A I'I' is moved 'outwardly airis admitted through
the inner members of the series of apertures v24 >50 leaks throughv the clearance between the side
walls of the valve and of the tube I6. This- is
and 24', and as said valve member I1 is` moved"
desirable because the carburetor is generally ad
further outwardly additional air will 'be Vadmitted
justed for a rich mixture, that is, one in which
through additional apertures of 'said'series until
there is a considerable'` excess of fuel. As lthe
the'entire 'plural series of apertures ‘24 vand :24'
will be admitting air to the air-fintake conduit" 55 speed further increases and becomes substantial,
or’casing'and through that conduit or casing toV the proportioning of fuel to air bythe carbu
retor changes so that the mixture becomes rich-ï
the manifold.
In. preferred form of 'my invention illustrated,` erg-'because the coeflicients'of iiow vary „with the
velocity of the gases in the carburetor, and for
the plural series of apertures 24,> 2.4' are arranged
in pairs and- these pairs'- arev progressively in 60 other reasons. The suction, however, diminishes

buretor, whereby the unburnt gases'r discharged
enableY a constant?pull to be maintained :on the 70 ture ina Vturbulent condition" so as to instantly
become a relatively homogeneous component of
valve I'I. SuchV constant pull of the suction willv
be jovercome by the propeller pull which is pro-v
gressively increased and strengthened in accord;~
ance with and in proportion tothe speed of thej
the combustible mixture.. _v This 'is due-to the fact'
that the air enters'the tube I6 >through 'opposed
openings 24,' _24l so Vthat the streams of air A.irn
pingeïon each other and cause eddying’which'in
a round pipe, and in an elbow such as I5, quickly
resolves itself into a pulsating and whirling ñow.
The whirling or spinning of the air is aided in
some degree by the rapidly rotating valve I‘I,
which indicates a further advantage in the use
of the propeller I8. Thus the air becomes quick- `
ly warmed up and is uniformly admixed to the
combustible mixture. While all this transpires
there is the constant interaction between the suc
tion and the pull of the propeller, as adjustably 10
modified by gravity, so that it is seen that the
motor and its fan cooperate with the valve struc
ture and the rotating propeller to avoid waste of
fuel and to maintain a highly sensitive interrela
tion of the parts without requiring any direct ac
tuator connection to the carburetor or the fan.
It is noteworthy that the force of gravity is a
constant quantity, and because the valve unit is
inclined, that effect is small. But it is impor
tant for moving the valve to close the ports pro 20
gressively and bring the valve into immediate
and strong responsive relation to the suction when

and rotatable about said axis, a propeller ro
tatably slidably mounted on the casing and beingv
axially connected to the valve so that the, lat

peller are slidable as a unit, said casing having f
openings communicating with the manifold and
with the atmosphere for admitting a quantity
of air to the engine sufficient to reduce the rich
ness ofthe combustible mixture as the engine
increases in speed, said valve bein-g gravitation

openings, and said propeller being opposed to the
said fan to be rotated thereby and to produce an
axial force causing opening movement of the
valve, and said valve being so related to the cas
ing that the engine suction tends „to close the
valve, whereby rotation of the valve andV pro
peller unit renders the same easily slidable in
response to the opposing forces of said suction
and of the fan blast.
