Why the engine die in the middle of the air and not start again?

Engine turn off? Fuel? and like Galway wrote: in the hurricane i16 153 cut out coz they have no fuel pump, so they kinda stop when u do negative g's.

It'll be a cold day in hell when we dont get at least one question relating to this!!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

What if you pressed "I"?

Just kidding :-)

Before it stops was it damaged? Did you hear any strange noise? Did you fly with overheat for too long?
Give us some more details.

Sure, they don't have FUEL PUMPS...I guess the fuel is reaching the engine under gravity feed, right? (True, BUT IN OTHER PLANES' CASE)
Or the pilot has a tube in the cockpit in which he blows to create pressure in the tank, thus the fuel can be transported to the engine...wait, now I know where the term blow job came from.
Sometimes is better to stay quiet...thus the impression of beeing "smart" lasts longer and is not geting trashed under the dumb things you write about something you obviously don't have a f...ing clue.


To get the real cause: Hurricane Mk.I, I-153 and I-16' engines are not fuel injected but fed with carburators, which were starving of fuel when under negative G (like when u push the stick forward sudenly). This neg. G force was driving the fuel out of the "constant level chamber" (aproximate translation...don't know the exact term in english) of the carburetor, thus it was not possible for it to feed the engine.
The problem was solved by inserting a device resembling a disc with a hole in the middle which prevented the fuel to ran out of the carburator for the brief moments when the G forces were acting.

Or, you can go on Google, type "carburateur fuel starvation" or Merlin/Hurricane fuel starvation, etc...and get a more techie explanation.

actually the early Merlins in the hurricanes FLOODED under negative G .. too much fuel got in and killed the engine, but the end result was the same ..

Has anyone ever restarted an engine on either the 16,or 153,or is that a dumb question.I've dived to build up speed,all the while punching the I button i,ve even landed,and tried it,generally I get blasted at that point by some kind person,All to no avail.
