The engine's fuel inlet manifold. Note the fuel line at back right.

Fuel flows from the turbopump through the fuel line, controlled by the main fuel valve, and enters the fuel inlet manifold. The thrust chamber is of a double-walled construction; fuel flows between the two walls of the thrust chamber towards the injector at the forward end of the engine, providing regenerative cooling.
