A vehicle body includes an occupant compartment having an instrument panel and a collapsible energy absorbing steering column assembly. A rigid bracket structure extends rearwardly from the forward wall of the body and is releasably secured to the rear portion of the steering column which collapses relative to the forw...
ENGINE OPERATION RELATED EVENT TIMING SYSTEM Abstract of the Disclosure Passage of an engine piston through reference positions while traveling toward and away from a dead center position is sensed to produce pulses that define an engine displacement, the midpoint of which corresponds to the passage of the piston...
In a direct current potential generating system of the type in which the system potential generating device field winding is energized by the generating system output potential connected in a field winding energizing circuit, an auxiliary direct current potential of a selected level is produced when the potential appli...
A system is described for automatically locking the doors of a vehicle equipped with electric power locks, wherein a first mode of operation is provided for vehicles having automatic transmissions and a second mode of operation is provided for vehicles having manual transmissions. The system includes means for sensing ...
An exhaust gas recirculation control valve is positioned by a diaphragm responsive to the difference between a control pressure and atmospheric pressure. The control pressure is adjusted so that its absolute value is maintained equal to a command which varies with engine operating conditions, whereby exhaust gas recirc...
D-5,115 APPARATUS FOR INDICATING INJECTION TIMING AND FUEL PER STROKE IN AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE Abstract of the Disclosure Apparatus for indicating timing and fuel/ stroke in a pulse fuel injection system for an internal combustion engine, especially a diesel engine, includes a magnetic pisto...
Apparatus for indicating fuel per pulse in a pulsed fuel injection system for an internal combustion engine, especially a diesel engine, includes a magnetic piston axially movable in a cylindrical bore in a fuel line to and from a stopped position blocking an inlet. The piston has an outer diameter just smaller than th...
ENGINE OPERATION RELATED EVENT TIMING SYSTEM Abstract of the Invention A system for indicating the timing of an engine control event relative to the top dead center position of an internal combustion engine. A sensor responsive to piston movement develops pulses of equal angular width before and after the top...
Abstract of the Disclosure: In a direct current potential generating system of the type in which the system potential gener-ating device fiels winding is energized by the generat-ing system output potential connected in a field winding energizing circuit, an auxiliary direct current poten-tial of a selected level is...
DIESEL ENGINE FUEL LIMITING SYSTEM Abstract of the disclosure: A fuel limit controller includes a computer supplying a commanded absolute EGR control pressure that is a measure of fuel supplied per diesel engine revolution. An absolute EGR control pressure equal to the commanded absolute pressure is ...
Electrical and mechanical operation of a bistable magnetically latching solenoid is diagnosed by monitoring induced voltage across the one of a pair of solenoid coils not energized. Energization of one of the pair of coils induces voltage across the other of the coils not energized and plunger actuation in response to ...
