    It seems a bit odd to make the comparison to the Jumo 211 (and not the DB 601) though.

    Hi Micdrow,

    >Merline X carberator performance

    Hm, it seems this highly interesting article misses one (or several?) pages ... is there a chance that you might be able to complete it? It seems to be great stuff for sure! :)

    Regards,

    Henning (HoHun)

    What's that about "The Ford Aero Engine" at the end of the injection carburetor article. I've never heard of it before, and it sounds very interesting.

    Hi Micdrow,

    >Sorry Henning, Its complete now. I forgot to add the last page.

    Thanks a lot! :) The second article suggests that the first article had created quite a stir ...

    I'd say from a modern point of view, there is no doubt of the value of fuel injection, but it seems that this was not immediately obvious when the technology was new.

    Regards,

    Henning (HoHun)

    It seems Fords's V-1650 engine project was part of the USAAF's "Hyper engine" program, not too much info on it but there is a mention of it on wikipedia's hyper engine article:

    Hyper engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hi Charles,

    >Is Merlin Carburator of course.:twisted:

    According to LEO Deutsch-Englisches Wörterbuch ...

    carburetor also: carbureter, carburator (Amer.)
    carburettor also: carburetter (Brit.)

    The term seems to invite alternative spelling ;)

    Regards,
