magneto/air pump assembly, a spark igniter, and a shielded ignition cable. The ignition system provides
the electrical spark necessary to start the engine. The starting air system consists of an air pump, an air
accumulator, a pressure gage, an air release button, and an airline. The air pump is a hand-operated,
plunger-type pump with the handle at the front end of the smoke generator. Pumping the handle on the
air pump assembly pressurizes the air accumulator assembly. The amount of air pressure in the air
accumulator is registered on the air pressure gage. The air release button is pressed to release the initial
blast of air needed to start the flow of fuel air mixture to the combustion chamber.

Frame Assembly. The frame assembly (Figure
7) consists of a toolbox, a welded tubular steel
frame, and four sliding handles used for
carrying the smoke generator. The handles are
held in place by retaining pins attached to the
frame with chains. When not in use, the handles
are placed in the retracted position.
