View of the hypergol manifold inlet.

The F-1 had a hypergol cartridge, which held the chemical mixture which was used to actually ignite the engine. The fluid passed from the hypergol cartridge, through the bellowed line (which was normally covered with a metal braid) seen here, and to the hypergol manifold inside the injector.
