Whatever happened to these things? I was reading an old mag from the 60s and it had an article about them replacing carburettors to good effect. I don't want one, just curious.

I don't know what happened to them but I remember seeing adds for them and actually saw one or two fitted. They looked pretty crude affairs with a butterfly valve and seemed to be directly connected to the fuel tap without a reservoir from memory so there was probably some metering linked to the throttle. I think they worked though.

Hi Dave,

I can remember a fella fiddling around with one of these on a TR6 in the mid-sixties. For whatever reason they never did catch on. RR

There has been a little discussion here from time to time about them. A quick search turned up this.

Looks like Old Wal was rather loose in his use of the term"fuel injector". Jack

It wasn't really an "injector" ... it just dribbled metered fuel into the venturi and off you went.

Good for drag-racers and hillclimbers, and some speedway bikes had them. If you look at the operation, it was good for constant full throttle and almost nothing else ....

I forgot where I read it, but it was an old article, describing it as a pre carburettor fuel / air mixing device for stationary petrol engines running on a more or less constant load.
It is certainly not an injector. An injector is a pump and nozle device. This is not.
So if an injector is called an injector because it injects, this could be called a dribbler.

Lannis hit it on the head.
Wal Phillips if I remember correctly was a speedway rider/manager in UK in the 1960s.
He originally developed the WP Injector for speedway bikes.
Hence no real importance placed on part throttle operation, idling or gas economy but every emphasis on flat out power.
HTH.
