This "invention relates .to -:and useful r111 movements in alarm signals and more gparticularly to signal "devises :foriindioatiiig 'eljow :Ilu'id' pressure.
One object 01' "the "invention is to provide an improved'alarm signal foraudibly indicating the *fallofa pressure belowia-predeterminedpoint and arranged so as'to "be rendered inoperative whenever' de's'ired.
ltnother object ofthe- "invention is "to provide an improved alarm signallhavingmeans respong 'sive tothe pressure of =a Ffluid for 'eontrolling jfith'e': "operation o1 an alarm and means 'for h'dldin'g the pressure :responsive *means against move' ment to"preventoperation of the alarm.
Aparticular object or the invention is to provide an improved alarm signdl, "of the character described, which includes a pressure--responsive member resiliently urged in one direction "for iadmitting'an-auxiliary pressure'iluidto an alarm ende posed to "a fluid so "as "to be moved "in the opposite direction by the pressure 0f =the latter fluid rm: preventing communication of the auxiliarytflu'id with the alarm-except "when the pressure or *said latter fiu'id is less than :a predetermined minimum.

The invention will be more readily understood from .a reading rof the 'followingaspecification and eby reference .1110 the accompanying drawings, wherein ran wexample lot the invention is shown, :and wherein:
Fig. *2 'is -a perspective :view or the upperiportionof the signal, showing the -parts 'inythe zon- 'erative open position :of the member,

'In the -'drawings, the "numeral designates the substantially upright :body 'or housing .(Of 'a low pressure alarm signal :having a mounting bracket H and. 'a :chamber the form-oi .an axial, cylindrical boreor :cylinder I12. The ride :vi'ce is adapted to vbe mounted on or adjacent an internal-combustion engine that shown) :01 other mechanism having oil :or :other 'fluid under pres-'- sure, such :as in a lubrication system. oil 'or other fluid line I3 is connected in san :axial, screw-threaded inlet -or port 1 4 :provided in the lower end of thelbody 110 "in scommunication with the cylinder I2, whereby theipressure of the 'oil or fluid is exerted "upon a ipressure responsive "member IS, in the .:form :of apiston orplunger, reciprocally "mounted in said goylinder. :will xbeexplained, the piston .115 :is adapted :to non- :trol'the operation of "an alarm devise it, "which is preferably audible and in the form of a whistle, by establishing 33113.6 shutting on "communication between the whistle and -'a source of air or otheriluid under' 'pressure, "such gasiline I 1. "Radial, screw-threadedQ ports ll! "and F9 are formed in intermediateflportion of the body "for connecting the whistle "I'G'and line 111, respectivejly, thereto in communication with the cylinder and the ports are preferably opposed "with the ngtlet port 18 being disposed above "the inlet port .A flanged bonnet or cap '20 is :screw threaded the-upper 'end of the cylinder andan axial rodor stem 2 l projects upwardly fromthe piston .throughfthe cap, tFornslidahly receivingthe stem 2!, the .cap 20 :has an axial, depending. uide sleeve 22 whiehtis externallyescrewethreadedand carries an adjusting nut- 23, :A: coiled-spring 24 confined between theinut and the upper :endof the piston surrounding relation :to vthe-stem"and guide sleeve for maintaining said @piston :in the :hosition showninfigid, Elhe'forceoi theesprine rig. :1 :is "39 transverse, ve'rtical,.isectiona1 wiew .i'ss may be' varie -hyca instiiieuthemutzza antiwar-Less to said nut is obtained by removal of a cover plate 25 (Fig.
An annular, external groove or recess 26 is formed in the piston and adjacent its upper end and is of suflicient width to establish communication between and connect the ports I8 and I9 when said piston is in its lower position (Figs. 3 and 4). Due to this communication, the line I I is connected to the whistle I6 and the pressure of the fluid in said line operates said whistle. Since the lower end of the piston is exposed to the pressure of the oil or fluid in the oil line, said piston is raised when said pressure exceeds the force of and compresses the spring 24. In this position of the piston, substantially as shown in Fig. 1, the port I9 is closed by the lower p'or-- tion of said piston whereby said port is shut ofi from communication with the port I8. Thus, the whistle or alarm is inoperative when there is sufficient pressure in the line I3 and is operated only when said pressure drops below a predetermined amount which is controlled by the force of the spring and the adjustment of the nut 23.
Suitable sealing rings 21, such as O-rings, are
carried by the piston above and below the groove 26 for preventing leakage of the operating pressure past said piston into the cylinder I2. It is noted that the lower ring 21 is disposed between the ports I8 and I9 when the piston is in its raised position. Similar sealing rings 28 are carried by the lower portion of the pistonfor confining the fluid in the oil line to the lower portion of the cylinder and are always disposed below the port I9. For sealing ofi between-the stem 2I and sleeve 22, a similar sealing ring 29 is carried by said stem.
In order to prevent operation of the alarm signal or whistle when there is no pressure in the oil line, such as when an internal combustion engine is not operating, means are provided for moving and holding the piston in a raised position with its groove 26 above and out of communication with the port I9 (Fig. 1). This means includes an unbalanced element or lever 30 pivotally connected to the upper end of the stem 2| which projects through the cap 20 and which has an enlarged head 3I overlying said cap. A yoke 32 is formed on the inner end of the lever 30 for receiving the head 3I and is connected thereto by a transverse pivot pin 33. The legs of the yoke 32 extend beyond the head and function as a fulcrum for raising the head and its stem as well as the piston I 5 upon upward swinging or pivotal movement of the lever. 1
33 are preferably rounded and project. beyond the yoke-for engagement in upright guide grooves or channels 36 formed in opposed ears or lugs 31 which project upwardly from the cap 20, as is most clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 5. Suitable stops or shoulders 38 are formed on the head 3| for limiting the movement of the lever and an arcuate surface 39 is provided between the shoulders for coacting with said lever. The latter is preferably angular and includes a weighted handle portion 40 for swinging said lever downwardly from the position shown in Fig. 1 to the position shown in Fig. 3.
'Whenever desired, the lever 30 may be swung upwardly to raise the piston to the position shown in Fig. 1 whichmoves the recess 26 out of communication with the port I9 and thereby shut off the flow of pressure fluid to the whistle IS. The lever and piston remain in this position until the pressure in the oil line I3 is suflicient to overcome the force of the spring 24. In the position shown in Fig. 1, the upper end of the piston is spaced from the lower end of the guide sleeve 22 whereby additional upwardmovement of said piston is permitted. Upon this additional upward movement, the yoke legs of the lever are moved out of engagement with the bearing plate 35 and the weight of the handle portion 40 causes downward swinging of said lever. After being swung downwardly, the lever or holding means is inoperative whereby the movement and position of the piston are controlled by the pressure of 'the oil line.
When there is suflicient pressure, the piston is forced upwardly to move the recess 26 out of communication with the port I9 and shut off the flow of air-or other pressure fluid to the port I8 and its whistle I6. If the pressure in the oil line falls below a predetermined amount, the force of the spring 24 moves thepiston downwardly to the position shownin Fig. 3 whereby the recess 26 establishes communication between the ports I9 and I8 and permits the flow of air or other pressure fluid to the whistle. As has been explained, upward movement of the piston by thelever or the-pressurein the oil line shuts 01f the whistle-actuating fluid.-
