Vehicular Energy Storing Means And System

View page
US Patent:
42769515, Jul 7, 1981
Filed:
Apr 16, 1979
Appl. No.:
6/030567
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
Assignee:
Colt Industries Operating Corp - New York NY
International Classification:
B60K 904
US Classification:
180165
Abstract:
A rotatable flywheel is selectively operatively connectable to the power drive train of a related vehicle and is effective to absorb energy from the vehicular ground-engaging drive wheels during vehicle deceleration thereby also providing for at least a degree of vehicular braking; a clutch is provided to enable the vehicular ground-engaging drive wheels to accelerate the flywheel while preventing the flywheel from driving such wheels through such clutch; an additional clutch is shown as being provided to enable selectively variable degrees of operative connection between the wheels and flywheel; and a related control is provided for affecting such selectively variable degrees of operative connection.

US Patent:
39943593, Nov 30, 1976
Filed:
Jun 6, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/584581
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
Assignee:
Colt Industries Operating Corporation - New York NY
International Classification:
B60K 1508
B60K 2800
US Classification:
180104
Abstract:
An automotive fuel system which has a fuel tank, a fuel pump, a fuel metering device for metering fuel flow to an associated fuel-consuming engine, and a fuel reservoir (such as, for example, a carburetor fuel bowl), has a valving assembly interposed generally between the outlet of the fuel pump and the fuel reservoir with such valving assembly being responsive to, for example, the associated vehicle experiencing a crash impact or a roll-over condition whereupon such valving assembly becomes effective to prevent the further flow of fuel from the fuel pump into the fuel reservoir.

Apparatus And Method For Preventing The Spillage Of Fuel From A Fuel Reservoir And The Like

US Patent:
44136030, Nov 8, 1983
Filed:
Dec 21, 1981
Appl. No.:
6/332485
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
Assignee:
Colt Industries Operating Corp - New York NY
International Classification:
F02M 3900
US Classification:
123510
Abstract:
A combustion engine is shown with a fuel metering device having a fuel reservoir or fuel bowl with such, in turn, having a float-controlled fuel inlet valve; a fuel supply conduit leading from a vehicular fuel tank to the inlet of the fuel bowl has a normally open solenoid valve and a flow meter situated in series therewith; a control device receiving signals indicative of engine speed and rate of fuel flow to the fuel bowl is effective to cause the solenoid valve to close and terminate further fuel flow whenever the numerical ratio of the rate of fuel flow divided by the engine speed exceeds a preselected magnitude of such a ratio or index.

Internal Combustion Engine Fuel Injection Apparatus And System

View page
US Patent:
52841197, Feb 8, 1994
Filed:
Jul 10, 1992
Appl. No.:
7/911476
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
International Classification:
F02M 3704
US Classification:
123497
Abstract:
The proposed fuel injection system for gasoline engines eliminates or reduces the excessive fuel by-pass of current systems by use of an engine driven fuel pump or by modulating fuel pump speed and fuel delivery so as to be directly proportional to engine speed.

Internal Combustion Engine Fuel Injection Apparatus And System

US Patent:
54110025, May 2, 1995
Filed:
Feb 28, 1991
Appl. No.:
7/662568
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
International Classification:
F02M 3704
US Classification:
123497
Abstract:
An engine fuel injection system is provided, wherein pumping maximum possible fuel required by the engine and by-passing excess fuel not used by the engine are eliminated, the speed of the variable speed electric fuel pump for the system being controlled so as to pump only the quantity of fuel required to operate the engine under certain sensed engine and/or ambient operating conditions, such control being provided by a fuel pressure sensor/electronic pump motor speed control.

US Patent:
43423710, Aug 3, 1982
Filed:
Apr 18, 1979
Appl. No.:
6/031311
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
Assignee:
Colt Industries Operating Corp - New York NY
International Classification:

Abstract:
A rotatable flywheel is selectively operatively connectable to the power drive train of a related vehicle and is effective to absorb energy from the vehicular ground-engaging drive wheels during vehicle decleration thereby also providing for at least a degree of vehicular braking; a clutch is provided to enable the vehicular ground-engaging drive wheels to accelerate the flywheel while preventing the flywheel from driving such wheels through such clutch; an additional clutch is shown as being provided to enable selectively variable degrees of operative connection between the wheels and flywheel; and a related control is provided for affecting such selectively variable degrees of operative connection.

US Patent:
39556417, May 11, 1976
Filed:
Jun 6, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/584650
Inventors:
Marion L. Smitley - Birmingham MI
Assignee:
Colt Industries Operating Corporation - New York NY
International Classification:
B60K 2800
US Classification:
180104
Abstract:
An automotive fuel system which has a fuel tank, a fuel pump, a fuel metering device for metering fuel flow to an associated fuel-consuming engine, and a fuel reservoir, as, for example, a carburetor fuel bowl with a float controlled fuel inlet valve, has a spring urging the float in a direction which results in a closing of the fuel inlet valve even against relatively high fluid pressure heads tending to open said inlet valve as may occur when the associated vehicle experiences a crash impact or a roll-over condition so as to terminate further flow of fuel from the fuel tank into the fuel reservoir.
