Development of New Auto Choke for Indian Carburettor - Two Wheeler Application 2001-26-0009
‘Auto choke’ concept for two wheeler applications was first introduced in India in 1986. This concept is well accepted and now Indian consumer has started demanding this feature. This is due to the fact that an ‘Auto choke’ with self-start feature eliminates all the hassles of engine starting and it is now just a flick of one button.
Although the Indian consumer is demanding this feature, there were certain problems associated with this system, like failure is not easily detectable, unsuitability to available Indian carburettor, high replacement cost, and most importantly localization, which compelled us to take up the development of an alternative system.
By considering all these aspects, a new system is designed, developed and implemented in mass production, which will take care of all these problems.
In this paper, the functioning of both the systems and development activities are discussed.
