Abstract : This patent application discloses an emergency bypass mechanism to route fuel around an electronically controlled fuel flow regulator of a combat vehicle when flow through the regulator becomes severely restricted. The mechanism includes electrically actuated valves hydraulically in parallel with the regulator, the valves being partly controlled by signals generated during manually shifting of the vehicle's transmission and partly controlled by a system of switches in a control panel. Keywords: Tank engines; Fuel engines; Fuel injection. (SDW)
