- ITNESSES: IYNVENTOR I 7 I I ATTORNEYS THOMAS R. ALMOND, OF DUNWOODIE HEIGHTS, NEIV YORK.

A U T O M O B I L E SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 639,490, dated December 19, 1899. Application filed October 16, 1899. Serial No. 733,717. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS R. ALMOND, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Dunwoodie Heights, Westchester county, State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Automobiles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates especially to what have become known as automobiles, and is directed to the production of means whereby a sure and certain connection may be made between the reservoir containing the hydrocarbon or other fluid and the burner or generator.

In the accompanying drawings I have illustrated my invention as applied to an automobile, with the understanding, however, that these drawings are illustrative merely and that the construction may be varied within wide limits without departing from the spirit of my invention.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional side elevation of an automobile carriage in which my invention is embodied. Fig. 2 is an illustrative diagram, partly in section, of the connection intervening between the fluid-reservoir and the burner or generator.

In the drawings, A represents a motor-vehicle, B thehydrocarbon-storage reservoir thereof, and O the burner or generator, which supplies the gas or vapor to the driving mechanism D. It has been customary heretofore to mount the hydrocarbon-reservoir and the burner or generator upon different parts of the motor-vehicle structure, which parts are disturbed in their relative positions by the jarring action of the vehicle when in motion, so that a rigid pipe connection between them is impracticable. A movable or adjustable jointed connection, however, is objectionable, owing to the extremely-penetrating character of the hydrocarbons employed, which escape through ordinary joints, causing leakage and the accumulation of hydrocarbon and dirt on the exposed parts of the vehicle. By my invention I join the hydrocarbon tank or reservoir B and the generator or burner O by a system of piping which will be highly flexible and will maintain the connections between the ends thereof and the hydrocarbon reservoir and burner or generator rigid. For this purpose I have employed the piping system E, shown in the drawings as a coiled pipe having its ends 6 c rigidly secured to the hydrocarbon tank or reservoir B and the generator or burner C. It will be observed that the hydrocarbon tank or reservoir 13 is mounted upon the rear portionof the vehicle and the burner or generator 0 is mounted upon the front portion of the vehicle, which portions of the vehicle are connected by the more or less flexible bottom board a, so that the said reservoir and generator will have an oscillating motion with respect to each other when the vehicle isin motion. Such oscillating motion willbe taken up in my device by the lateral flexure of the coiled pipe E, as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 2, in which figure the dotted lines 00 represent, theoretically, the positions assumed by the coil when bending in an upward direction, the lines y y representing the positions assumed by the coils when the same are bent laterally in a downward direction.

It will be observed that the apparatus is devoid of loose joints, the only joints being the rigid joints 6 c, and that the pipe E is molecularly'continuous, so that the joints e 6' being rigid and the molecularly continuous pipe being capable of lateral fixture there will be no danger of leakage of the extremely-penetrating hydrocarbon liquid employed.

Having described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s-- In a vehicle, the-combination of a reservoir and a burner or generator mounted upon the said vehicle and adapted to oscillate with respect to each other, of a continuous laterallyfiexible coiled piping intervening between the said reservoir and the said burner or generator and united to the said reservoir and burner or generator by rigid joints, substantially as described and. for the purposes set forth. THOMAS E. ALMOND.
