The main purpose of the fuel injection system is to deliver fuel into the cylinders of an engine. In order for the engine to effectively make use of this fuel: Fuel must be injected at the proper time, that is, the injection timing must be controlled end.
The injection of the fuel is achieved by the location of cams on a camshaft. This camshaft rotates at engine speed for a two-stroke engine and at half engine speed for a four-stroke. There are two basic systems in use, each of which employs a combination of mechanical and hydraulic operations. The most common system is the jerk pump; the other is the common rail.
