dc.descriptionThis test was conducted to determine the minimum fuel head at the carburetor, required for normal operation on propeller load of a Liberty "12" aviation engine fitted with Zenith U. S. 52 carburetors. The minimum fuel head required varies from 1/2 inch of fuel at extreme idle to 16 inches at full throttle, 1,700 revolutions per minute, for carburetors which give a mixture sufficiently rich to produce smooth operation over the entire range of speeds. If the carburetors give a lean enough mixture at any speed to produce rough operation of the engine, the head required at that speed may exceed that at full throttle.en_US
