A word of caution;
extreme care must be taken when
cleaning or handling the nozzles,
since even the acid on the
fingers may corrode and produce a

Engines such as the Lycoming T53
L11 use vaporizing tubes instead
of injector nozzles. The
vaporizing tube is a Tshaped,
ceramiccoated pipe, whose exit
faces upstream to the airflow.

filter before the fuel pump and
one on the highpressure side

after the pump. In most cases
the filter includes a relief
valve set to open at a specified differential pressure (PSID) between
inlet and outlet pressure. This gives the fuel a bypass if the
filter becomes clogged from contamination.
