F-1 With Callouts

This page serves as a repository for photos and diagrams of the F-1 rocket engine with callouts identifying major (and even not-so-major) components. I have several more photos and diagrams which I intend on uploading once I clean them up.


This diagram is from the Saturn V News Reference. It reflects an early F-1 configuration with internally tied propellant high-pressure ducts. After SA-501 (the Apollo 4 mission), the F-1s had rigid propellant high-pressure ducts. The rigid high-pressure ducts are easily identified as the fuel high-pressure ducts make a large "U" shape, rather than being straight as depicted here.

The engine components identified here include

 
  • Engine Interface Panel
  • Oxidizer Pump
  • Fuel Pump
  • Turbine
  • Heat Exchanger
  • Turbine Exhaust Manifold
  • Nozzle Extension

This diagram is from the Saturn V Flight Manual SA-509. It reflects the post-SA-501 (the Apollo 4 mission), F-1 configuration with rigid propellant high-pressure ducts. This diagram is also rotated approximately 90° compared to the diagram above.
