[underlined] Automatic Boost Control [/underlined]

[underlined] 1 [/underlined] [underlined][ indecipherable word][/underlined]

June 28th Saturday [underlined] Morning [/underlined]

Is a device fitted to an aircraft engine to automatically control boost pressure and so relieve the pilot of this responsibility. The device itself consists of an air tight chamber which is connected to the pressure side of the super charger. Anchored to the top of the chamber by means of a screwed spindle is a stick of [deleted] circulated [/deleted] evacuated capsules, these capsules are connected to a piston valve which moves in one direction or the other depending upon whether the aneroid expands or contracts under the influence of changes of pressure in the induction system. If the aneroid extends due to a reduction of press[missing letters] the piston valve is lowered and H.P. oil is permitted to enter the Servo Cylinder to the [underlined] Lower [/underlined] side of the Servo Piston which in turn is forced up in the cylinder. The Servo Piston is connected to toggle link work which is interposed between the throttle operating lever and the throttle and is arranged in such a way that when the piston rises the throttle is opened. Should the Induction pressure rise to [sic] high the

[page break]

[underlined] 2 [/underlined]

aneroid contracts and oil pressure forces the [underlined] servo piston down [/underlined] and so closes the throttle.

Boost Over riding Device

From the foregoing it will be obvious that while the boost pressure is being maintained at normal by the automatic control, the power output of the engine will also be normal. In certain circumstances such as when taking off the pilot may wish to use the maximum power of which the engine is capable. To obtain this extra power the boost control must be [deleted] restet [/deleted] reset to give a [deleted] ligs [/deleted] slightly larger throttle swing. This is accomplished by a movement of a [missing letters]ver in the pilots cockpit which brings into operation a device known as boost overide. [sic]

MIXTURE ENRICHING DEVICE

In view of the increasing compression and expansion pressures, due to the larger throttle opening it is imperative that from 10% to 15% increase in mixture strength to supress [sic] detonation. The extra petrol required for this is supplied

[page break]

by a mixture enriching device which comes into [missing word] a few degrees before the boost overide [sic] [inserted] WITH [/inserted] which [inserted] it [/inserted] is connected. The extra petrol reaches the Induction system before the boost pressure increases thereby depressing detonation. [symbol]

[underlined]Meaning. Servo piston connection [/underlined]

This connecting rod should be rather on short [deleted] st [/deleted] side than too long otherwise servo piston will reach top of stroke before throttle is fully open. This will affect power output at altitude and will not be apparent when engine is running on the ground.

A type of hydraulic control consisting of a transmitter unit having a hand operating lever, and a receiver unit having a lever which follows the first. Each unit consists of Rocker Assembly Spring Assembly, Piston & Cylinder. Connecting units together is a length of pipeline and the cistern is filled with a free flowing liquid which is kept under pressure by the action of the springs which oppose each other. Fluid tightness is by packing glands each gland containing a cup leather.

A reservoir is fitted to the transmitter unit so that the cistern may be compensated for any variation in volume caused by changing temperatures, or slight leaks. A compensating valve is fitted between the reservoir and the cylinder and is brought into operation when the operating lever is moved to the [missing word] end of its [deleted] stroke [/deleted][inserted] travel [/inserted], piston being on the upward [missing words]

[underlined] INSTRUMENTS [/underlined]

All instruments are to be frequently examined for external defects (I.E broken glass loose connections, loose clips on tubing, leaks, and subjected periodically to calibration tests as laid down in flight maintainance [sic] orders or when the accuracy of the instruments is suspected.

Radiator Thermometer (Transmitting type)

The vapour pressure type is the one in common use. [deleted] Oil [/deleted][inserted] The whole [/inserted] system is sealed and is partially fitted with a volitile [sic] liquid ethyl ether.

[underlined] Oil Temperature Thermometer [/underlined] (Transmitting type)

The sealed system is completely filled with mercury.

[underlined] Oil Pressure Guage [sic] [/underlined] (Transmitting type)

The guage [sic] consists of a sealed system completely filled with ethyl alchohol, [sic] it is comprised of a bordon [sic] tube, capillarates [sic] & capsules. Capsule is contained in a flat cylindrical case adapted for fitting the endgine [sic] by means of a special hollow bolt and [deleted] some [/deleted] so mounted that the

[page break]

[underlined] 11 [/underlined]

eterior [sic] of the capsule is in communication with the oil pressure system of the engine. Pressure of the oil on the capsule is transmitted by the liquid to the [deleted] burdon [/deleted][inserted] bourdon [/inserted] tube.

Fuel Pressure Guage. [sic] (Direct type)

The Fuel under pressure is conveyed direct to the bourdon tube by a small diameter pipe line. This pressure tends to straighten out the bourdon tube and so move the pointer on the dial.

Fuel Pressure Guage [sic] (Transmitting type)

Constructed on same line as oil pressure guage adopted for fitting in the fuel pressure system

[underlined] Flexible drives for Revolution Indicators [/underlined]
(Tachometer Drive)

To enable Rev indicators to be driven in remote positions, the connection to the engine is by a flexible shaft running at 1/4 engine speed. The shaft is encased in a flexible brass sheath packed with grease for the purpose of lubrication.

[underlined] Clarkes Viscosity Control Valve [/underlined]

Visoty [sic] control valve is incorporated in the lubrication system of the engine and is fitted between scavenger pumps and oil tank. It controls, through the changing viscosity of the oil, the flow of the oil from engine direct to tank or from the engine via the cooler to the tank. It is essentially a viscosity valve, not a thermo control valve.

[Jeffries signature]

[underlined] Thermostat for liquid Cooled Engines [/underlined]

A thermostat is fitted to liquid cooled aero engines to keep the engine warm under any [inserted] all [/inserted] conditions, to avoid severe internal stresses through sudden changes in temperatures. This is done by by passing the radiator so long as the coolant temperature is below a predetermined value and by graduall [sic] bringing the radiator into operation as the temperature rises. After a predetermined rise in temperature the full cooling capacity of the radiator is used.

[underlined] Tests [/underlined]

temperature should rise rapidly 850 centigrade and should remain steady.

[underlined] 2 [/underlined] During flight temp should not fall more than 100 C below the opening temperature stamped on the Thermostat

[underlined] Examination on Receipt [/underlined]

Exam should be made to see that the radiator valve is fully closed and bypass is fully opened. Should the bypass be observed to be closed instrument is damaged and unserviceable

Air Screws

[inserted] The [/inserted] Airscrews fitted to the machine in order to convert the rotary motion of the engine in to tracktion [sic] force. Pitch of an A/S is the distance the A/S will travel forward

[page break]

[underlined] 19 [/underlined]

in one rev assuming that there is no slip (measured in feet & inches) [underlined] Blade Angle [/underlined] B A varies from [underlined] Root to tip [/underlined] because the tip of the of the A/S travels faster than a point near the root of the Blade. The angle of the blade is greater near the root theoretically this distributes the thrust of the A/S evenly over the whole blade.

[sketch] [sketch]

Checking track of A/S

Set machine in rigging position and place a pointer on a suitable stand so that the pointer is against the trailing edge of the A/S blade about 2/3 of its distance from the centre. Rotate the A/S through 1/2 a Rev taking care not to move the machine or the pointer, Check up any clearance

[page break]

[underlined] 20 [/underlined]

between the pointer and the trailing edge if the clearance exceeds 5/16” the A/S should be removed.

Static Balance July 4TH

Owing to the fact that an airscrew is purely a rotating body care must be taken to ensure that the weight on one side of the axis is exactly the same within subscribed limits as the weight on [deleted] the weight [/deleted] on the opposite side. To check and adjust this an air-screw is statically balanced.

Metal A/S (FIXED PITCH)

The maximum balanced error allowed in the manufacture of metal A/Ss is 5”oz. Balance of a metal A/S should not change during use.

Fitting A/S TO HUB

The position of the hub in the boss must be carefully checked to ensure that it is concentric, this may be checked by [deleted] used [/deleted] feeler guages inserted between [underlined] hub [/underlined] and the

[page break]

[underlined] 21 [/underlined]

boss. When tightening the hub bolts ensure that they are tightened gradually and evenly otherwise damage to the boss faces may result.

[underlined] Fitting Gypsy A/S to Engine [/underlined]

[underlined] GREWINER FIRE EXTINGUISHER [/underlined]

Its purpose is to put out fires in the engine compartments if a crash occurs and to enable fires to be extinguished in flight or if the A/C over turns if making a forced landing. The extinguishing medium used is pure methyl bromide contained in copper bottles under an high pressure. When this fluid is discharged it immediately evaporates with an [deleted] immediate [/deleted][inserted] intense [/inserted] cooling effect. The engine is sprayed with the fluid so that the hot metal parts become instantly reduced in heat below the ignition point of petrol and the fire is instantly smothered.

Oil Coolers.

[underlined] 1 [/underlined] Function of an oil cooler

Modern areo [sic] engines develop high powers and are extensively cooled to reduce head resistance to the aeroplane. This tends to cause the lubricating oil to become overheated

[page break]

and so neccesitates [sic] the introduction of an [sic] cooling device in the oil line.

POSITION IN SYSTEM Between engine savenger [sic] [inserted] oil [/inserted] pump and oil tank, Oil coolers employed on aeroplanes are are [sic] cooled and are generally mounted in the slipstream of the airscrew.

A/M TYPE A 325 COOLER

Description The main members of the cooler are a number of fins assembled on 2 parallel connecting tubes the fins being separated from one another by means of intermediate spacing rings. An odd number of fins are employed because oil flows through the fins in series and must emerge at the outlet connection which is situated on the side opposite to that of the inlet

Inhibiting

[underlined] Anti corrosive treatment [/underlined] D.T.D. 230

Engines which have been run on leaded fuel Before storage the engine cylinders should be sprayed internally with an inhibitting [sic] fluid known as E.G. 174. The amount of fluid used varies with the size of the cylinders [deleted] wil [/deleted] between 5 – 25 cc per cylinder. The spraying is carried out through the plug holes with the piston at B.D.C thereafter the engine should not be turned during storage if it should be it must be reinhibited Inhibitting [sic] must be carried out every 6 months The sump should be partially filled with llanolised [sic] oil the quantity varying as laid down in the makers hand book. In the case of an inline engine with an O.C.S Remove cam shaft cover and coat with llanolised [sic] oil [deleted] engine [/deleted] Engines which have been run on DTD 224 Into each cylinder llanolised [sic] oil is injected with a syringe
