The Flow Divider controls fuel flow to the engine nozzles according to a predetermined schedule of secondary flow versus primary flow. A dump valve was incorporated as an integral unit to drain the fuel from the manifolds and fuel lines following engine shutdown.

What is a fuel injector servo regulator? ›

The fuel injector servo regulator works to create the right ratio of air-to-fuel. This is done by comparing the inlet air pressure to the fuel inlet pressure. This allows your plane to determine a metered fuel pressure.

What sensor controls the fuel pump? ›

The fuel tank pressure sensor is part of the fuel pump assembly and is mounted on top of the tank or inside the tank. It's part of the evaporative emissions system (commonly referred to as “EVAP”) and reads pressure in the fuel system to detect evaporative leaks, such as a loose or faulty gas cap.
