Detail of the fuel line leading to the hypergol container.

As the turbopumps came up to speed and fuel pressure rose, fuel carried by this line would rupture a burst disc in the hypergol cartridge, releasing the contents of the cartridge to the injector to establish combustion.

The labels on the line read "Rocket Fuel", "RP-1", and "900 PSI".
