Description:
Abstract:

My invention relates to improvements in gas-engines; and it consists in a certain device for igniting the charge of gas whereby the gas jet is dispensed with and the necessity of the slide-valve is entirely avoided. As the best means of effecting this end I have employed the electrical dynamo, which I operate by the engine, as will be shown.

Claims:

1. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuit located within the same, and a finger carried by the piston-head for breaking the circuit, substantially as set forth.

2. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuit located within the same, one of said terminals being movable and the other stationary, and a finger carried by the piston-head and adapted to break the circuit, substantially as set forth.

3. In an electrical igniter for-gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of a pivoted lever, a stud, said stud and lever being normally in contact, and located within the gas-chamber, wires connecting with the dynamo, and means for breaking the contact of the stud and lever.

4. In an electrical igniter for gas engines, the dynamo O and insulated stud, in combination with a pivoted lever, the connecting wires P Q, and a finger carried by the piston head, substantially as set forth.

5. The dynamo O, connected by a wire, P, with an insulated stud having its contact end located within the gas-chamber and the connecting wire Q attached to the engine, in combination with a movable lever within the gas chamber, pulleys J and N, located as described, a belt connecting said pulleys, and means for breaking the contact of the stud and lever, substantially as set forth.

6. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with the gas-chamber, of an insulated stud, a pivoted lever, said stud and lever being normally in circuit, and a finger carried by the piston-head and adapted to break the contact of the stud and lever, substantially as set forth.

7. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with the gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuits located within the same, one of said terminals having a slot, and a finger having a bent end, and carried by the piston-head to engage the same, substantially as set forth.
