So, the simplest way to start up an F-16s engine is to flip the power switch to "main power" and then set the "jet fuel" switch to "Start 1" or "Start 2".
I have a very simple understanding of the F-16s systems but from what I remember, there is some kind of pressurized gas-bottle, which cranks one of the engine-shafts and gets it to pull fuel from the lines so the engine can be started up.
Is that right and where can I find a detailed set of instructions on how to start up an F-16 (maybe startup and pre-flight checklists) and resources that show how the startup works internally, from the tech side of things.
And if someone here has the knowledge and time, it would be super awesome, if they could also explain what happens, when you go to "main power" (the one before is Batt. and the next also engages the generators i think?!) and then select one of the JFS modes 1 or 2.
