AN APPROACH TO ALTITUDE COMPENSATION OF THE CARBURETOR

Carburetion and a number of other engine functions dependent on manifold vacuum are adversely affected at higher altitudes. This paper presents various approaches to compensate for this effect, discusses the rationale leading to the variable air bleed approach chosen by Carter Carburetor Division and reviews the significant features of the compensating device as developed. /GMRL/
