More particularly the invention pertains to im

the fuel stream at the location of ?nal discharge.
One of the main objects of the invention is to

In the form of the invention illustrated in Fig.

identical to that shown in Figs. 1 to 6, inclusive,

and corresponding parts are designated by the
member and between which are located fuel pas

the valve is only slightly open, thereby causing
the fuel to ?ow through the passages 29 during

Since the passages 29
are smaller than the grooves 33, the velocity of
the fuel discharge is maintained during initial
valve opening operation and until the quantity
of fuel ?owing past the valve is su?icient to
maintain normal discharge velocity through the
larger grooves 33, as for example when the valve
is fully open.
