Abstract : Some of the operating characteristics of the J47-GE-27 engine were investigated with the emergency fuel selector valve installed. In an attempt to determine whether the selector valve had any adverse effects on engine operation. This test did not disclose any adverse effects on engine operation. The selector valve prevented the emergency fuel system from over-riding the main fuel system; however, the emergency fuel system does not take over automatically in case of a main fuel system failure.
