Hey guys, I was wondering if someone here could have a look through the link below, which is only a couple of short pages, and tell me if they see anything resembling a carburettor. From what I understand, a carburettor is a device that mixes air and fuel in an internal combustion engine, and the air and fuel is certainly mixed in the patent below, so I was wondering if this might be an example of an early carburettor. Much appreciated thanks.
Whoops I meant this link:
It's only a few (I think 3) pages, and short ones at that.
What do you mean by this? If you aren't willing to help me, could you at least tell me which board I should try where I could find people who are?
I mean it's an entire engine, sperglord. It's a fucking cylinder in which a fuel/air mixture is burned to drive a piston. There is no carburetor; you can think of it as a direct-injection engine with some old time faggot doing the injection manually.
It's no surprise you couldn't understand ye olde patent when you can't even understand "it's an entire engine."
Wait, I thought it was impossible to build a liquid-fuel non-diesel ICE without a carburettor or modern fuel injection. Are you telling me it actually is possible to build a liquid-fuel ICE without a carburettor with late 18th-century technology?
