Geneva Lock

Recommended Posts

The Geneva Loc is not the proper name of the part. The proper name is Fuel Shutoff Valve Actuator. As the name implies, it is an actuator that shuts off the fuel valve inside the fuel control. I believe we call it the Geneva Loc because it is the manufacturer of the part, much like calling an engine mount a Lord mount. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

You are right Lkuest.

"Geneva loc" is the name of the manufacturer.

Simply, the Fuel control shutoff valve "actuated by electric motor" allows the fuel during start to be introduced to the engine burning section at a specified rpm, and due to the design it provides “cut-off†to the fuel electrically (and mechanically if required by condition lever feather position) when engine is to be shut-down.
