Ex-Cell-O Fuel Injector Model B4 and B6 (1124 KB PDF)  (Donated by Robert Parker, 5-20-02)
  • Handbook and Instruction Manual, Model B4 and B6 Gasoline Injection System
    Note from the contributor, Robert Parker:
        There is/was an Ex-Cell-O fuel injection system used on small aircraft. During WWII the military want an injected engine, so the Mfgs. went to Ex-Cell-O. They made a B4 and B6 model, for 4 and 6 cylinder tractors, needless to say the fuel injection was put on military aircraft. Some TCDS call for Ex-Cello-O as an option. Don,t know this for a fact, but the NAS carb. was most likely the reason for the military desires.
        Ex-Cell-O was in Detroit instead of Chicago, they still exist but sold the rights for the system, to a tractor firm in Norfolk back in 50s. I called the tractor place in 1985 and they said they had not supported the system since 1960s, later years.
        On Continental 85s it was mounted on the bottom nose, where they put the vacuum pumps now. On Franklin 6 cyl. it was mounted on the rear accessory case.  On the Continental C125 it was mounted on the nose case left side. On the Jacobs 0-360 I am not sure but I think it was mounted on the rear case, that was a liquid cooled engine.
       I have a customer that has one on his C-85 Chief, I overhauled in 1985 (when I found all of this out) and it is still running trouble free. Have cleaned the injectors a couple times but that is all, since I O/Hd it in 85.
        There is a lot of bad mouthing of them by some on this list, I feel it is because they know nothing of the system. It does have to be timed to the engine, maybe they did not know this, and had problems. With my experience with the system, I cannot tell you why it did not go over.  So, yes, they did have fuel injection on small airplanes.
