"concept" section wrong[edit]

The explanation of the problem with float carburetors and the description of "Miss Shilling's orifice" mode of operation is wrong according to

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miss_Shilling's_orifice — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.175.228.145 (talk) 17:55, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the idea of Miss shilling orifice is not to remove the negative G cut-out but a more severe problem: the flooding of the carburetor and rich cut-out. Negative G cut-out will only affect the plane for a short time, but a rich cut-out will possibly stop the engine for the rest of the flight. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.111.130.175 (talk) 05:37, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Same as a diaphragm carburetor?[edit]

Isn't a pressure carburetor really the same as a Diaphragm carburetor? -- Egil (talk) 22:16, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
