Abstract:

Variable load tests were conducted and attempts were made to obtain endurance runs. The test operation was generally unsatisfactory due to numerous casualties and to the inadequate delivery capacities of the gasoline nozzle and air compressor. The test of the first engine was discontinued after 86 hours operation. A replacement engine embodying numerous modifications was subsequently furnished for test. It was operated a total of 79 hours. Test operation again was generally unsatisfactory due to numerous minor casualties and operating difficulties, such as fouling of the gasoline or air nozzles, carbon deposits on the burner head, deformation of the burner grate and improper operation of the burner control.
