a. Fuel Flow. Fuel is pulled from fuel tank (1) by a cam actuated fuel transfer pump (2). The fuel is drawn
through a chassis mounted combination filter/separator (3) and into the fuel transfer pump (2) which supplies
low-pressure fuel (20-39 psi) to the engine mounted fuel filter head (4). The fuel is pumped through a
canister-type combination filter/separator (5) and a canister-type filter (6) and into the fuel injection
pump (7). The engine uses a distributor-type fuel pump supplied by Robert Bosch. The distributor pump
builds the high injection pressure (3,200 psi) required for combustion, and routes the fuel through individual
high-pressure fuel lines (8) to each injector (9).
When the high-pressure fuel reaches the injector, the pressure lifts a needle valve against spring tension in
the injector to let the fuel enter the combustion chamber. The fuel injector has very small holes in the tip that
change the flow of fuel to a very fine spray that burns easily in the cylinder. Leakage of fuel past the needle
valve stem is used for lubrication of the injector. This leakage enters a fuel drain manifold. The fuel drain
manifold routes controlled venting (lubrication) from the distributor injector pump and injectors back to the
fuel tank.
