Figure 6 is a sectional detail taken substantially on the .Figure 9 is a sectional elevation'taken substantially on the lines 9 -9 as; shown in Figure 2.

Referring to the drawings, the housing generally designated 10 includes a base 11, spacerv ring 12, cover 13, an elbow 14 and anannular'shell 15. An adapter ring 16 is attached tov the base 11' by meansof threadedlfastener 17 and this ring rests onthe flange 18 ofthe upright tubular member'19 which constitutes part of a conventional carburetor 20. The usual butterfly type throttle valve 21 is provided in thetubular member 19 and opera ated by conventional means (not shown). The .carbu- 'retor communicates with the intake manifold 22 of a con-- ventional internal combustion engine (not shown).

I The base 11 is. provided with three upstanding bosses U i ed States Patent 2,927,848 Patented 'Mar. 8, 1 960 2' l 23 and through the spacer ring 12 and cover 13 to secure the parts in assembled relationship.

A flexible annular diaphragm 25 is clamped on its outer periphery between the cover 13 and spacer ring 12 and this diaphragm 25 has a central opening 26 through which a central projection 27 on the cover 13 depends. The inner portionof the diaphragm 25 is clamped to the upper surface '28 of the air valve member 29 by means of the back-up plate 30 and threaded fastenings 31. p This air valve member 29 moves vertically with the inner portion of the flexible diaphragm 25 and it is guided for vertical movement by means of a central axial rod 32. This rod is connected to the air valve member by threads 33 and the rod has an enlarged upper end 34 slidably received in a vertical bore 35. This bore 35 is provided within a boss 36 mounted within the elbow 14. The elbow has a central portion which is clamped to the cover 13 by means of the threaded fastenings 37. The downward'projection 27 on the cover 13 is provided with a central passage .38 for fuel. A fuel valve 39 has a central opening slidably received on the rod 32 and a coil spring 40 acts to hold 'the fuel valve 39 against the washer 41 and the rod en- A seat ring 45 encircles the air valve member 29 and is provided with a central cylindrical bore 46. This seat ring 45 is providedwith three radially projecting arms' -47 and at the other. end of each of these arms 47 there is provided a vertical post 48 which is mounted for sliding movement within vertical apertures 49 provided in the base 11. During normal operation of. the device, the lower surface 50 on the seat ring 45 rests on the cooperating surface 51 on the base 11. The posts 48 serve to maintain alignment between the cylindrical opening 46 in the seat ring 45 and the discharge opening 23a in the base 11. 7 Another function of the posts 48 is described hereinafter.

A flatannular valve ring 52 is looselymounted on the air valve member 29 near the upper end thereof and is supported by an annular shoulder 53. The valve ring 52 is adapted to rest on the surface 54 at the uppenend of the seat ring 45 when the valve member 29 is imits lowest position. A coil spring 55 encircles the projection 27 and is interposed between the back-up plate 31! and the cover 13. This spring 55 normally acts to'move the .-circumferentiall-y spaced on the under-side thereof and each of these bosses merges with a tapering outer surface 57 which extends between each of the bosses. Each boss has a downward opening aperture or part 58 which establishes communication from the chamber 43 within the air valve member 29 to the space within the discharge opening 24 in the base 11. The central portion of the valve member 29 is closed at the lower end by the bottom wall 60. A smooth curved outer surface between the positions or the bosses 56 is thus defined by the curved wall 57 and curved wall 61 on the bottom portion 60. Accordingly, when the air valve member 29 is raised upward to the dotted line position shown in Figure 2, the valve plate 52 is lifted away from the seat ring 45 and a smooth passage for flow of air inward from the space Thestrength of the spring aee' ness outside the seat ring 45 into the space 59 is provided, as shown by the arrow 69. This downward fiow of air within the seat ring 45 has an aspirating effect on gaseous fuel passing downward through the ports 58 from the chamber 43 of the air valve member 29.

' In Operation the supply of gasoline to thecarburetor is shut off and gaseous fuel such as butane is supplied under atmospheric pressure through the inlet conduit 65 and enters the space 42 within the elbow 14. Suction in the intake manifold 22 of the internal combustion engine reduces the pressure within the tubular member 19 above the throttle valve and within the space 59. Atmospheric air enters the shell around the lower peripheral edge thereof, passes through the filter 66, and enters the space 67 outside the seat ring 45. The pressure of the atmospheric air below the flexible diaphragm 25 applies an upward force to the diaphragm which is greater than the downward force of the spring 55 plus the gravity weight of themoving parts because the space 68 above the diaphragm 25 communicates with the space 59 through chamber 43 and ports 58 by way of the annular opening 26. The pressure above the diaphragm 25 is lower than the pressure below it whenever the engine is running, and the action of the diaphragm 25 is to lift the air valve member 29 relative to the seat ring 45, thereby to permit flow of air from the space 67 in the direction of the arrow 69 into the interior of the seat ring 45. The flow of air downward along the curved surfaces 57 and into the opening 24 and tubular member 19 causes an aspirating effect producing discharge of gaseous fuel through the ports 58. Thefuel is mixed thoroughly with the flowing air as it passes outof the mixer device and into the tubular member 19. a

As the air valve member '29 raises, it also raises the fuel valve cone 39 and hence reduces the restricting effect with the fuel passage 38 with the result that the rate of flow of gaseous fuel is increased. Accordingly, up-

' wa'rd movement of the air valve 29 serves to increase both the rate of flow of air and gaseous fuel in the proper proportions. The action of the diaphragm 25 is to increase the flow of combustible mixture to the engine as the throttle 21 is turned toward open position. The reduction in pressure in the member 19 above the throttle valve 21 becomes more pronounced as the throttle valve opens, with corresponding increase in the extent'of movement of the diaphragm 25.

A screw plug 70 is mounted on the elbow 14 and projects into the space 42 to restrict the flow of gaseous fuel to any desired extent. The plug is fixed in adjusted position by means of the lock nut 71 and is covered by the protector 72. Another plug 73 is removably mounted on the elbow directly above the bore 35 and serves only to close an access opening for inserting a screw driver or other tool into the'bore for the purpose of adjusting the position of the threaded rod 32 with respect to the air valve member 29.

The plate valve 52 is provided in order that the fuel 'valve 39 may seat tightly and close ofi all flow of gaseous fuel when the diaphragm 29 is in its lowermost position. The plate valve 52 strikes the upper surface 54 on the seat ring 45 before the fuel valve 39 completely closes the passage 38.

Removable plug 74 closes an opening which may be used when required to connect one side of a pressure regulator diaphragm (not shown) with the space 67 within the mixer device. Normally a pressure regulator of some type is required for supplying gaseous fuel such as butane at atmospheric pressure and a regulator device of conventional type for accomplishing that purpose may employ a diaphragm having one side exposed to the atmospheric pressure. In certain instances, it is desirable to balance the atmospheric pressure againstthat diaphragm with the pressure existing within the space 67. I In some instances, it is desirable to operate an 'internal combustion engine on eithcr' q usl 3 I have provided means for rendering the mixer device inoperable and to arrange the internal parts so that a free flow of air may be obtained directly from the air filter 66 into the tubular member 19. As shown in the drawings, this means includes cam mechanism for raising the seat ring 45 to the inoperative position shown in Figure 4. I provide a cam ring which has a horizontal portion 81 mounted to turn freely in a groove 82 provided on the base 11 adjacent the adapter ring 16. The cam ring 80 is also provided with downward extendin'g arcuate cam elements 82a, having camming surfaces 83 engaging head elements 84 provided on the other ends of the vertical posts 48. An actuating arm 85 is fixed on the cam ring 80 and arranged tobe moved through an arc of travel by means of a cable 86 clamped to the arm by means of the terminal fitting 87 and set screw 88. When the cable is actuated, the cam ring 80 is turned through an arc to bring the cam elements 82 from the inoperative position shown in Figure 6 to the active position shown in Figure 7. This action serves to lift the vertical posts 48 against the action of the springs 89 to elevate the seat ring 45 to the position shown in Figure 4.

In this position, air flows from the space 67 under the seat ring 45 and between the surfaces 50 and 51 into the space 59 and into the interior of the tubular member 19. The supply of gaseous fuel is shut oif by means (not shown) upstream from the conduit 65 and liquid fuel is supplied to the carburetor 20 by conventional means (not shown). When the seat ring 45 is in the elevated position as shown in Figure 4, the engine operates on liquid fuel passing through the carburetor in the conventional manner.
