MOTOR NOTES SMOOTHING OUT PAINT SCRATCHES [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 6 April 1928

, : MOTOR NOTES SMOOTHING OUT PAINT SCRATCHES Scratches which have not penetra ted completely through the paint' to the undercoating, or further, can very often be smoothed out by careful and somewhat lengthy rubbing with a very fine abrasive. For this purpose, one may successfully use the '• sedi ment in brass polish on a soft pieco of rag-the latter wrapped round a finger tip. A- bad ' surface scratfth across a back wing, caused by con tact -with the front wing on another, and carelessly driven car, was •elimin ated completely bp using succsesively Unifo powder, brass polish spdient. and -powder-whiting; the latter moist ened with lubricating oil, being a fine abrasive indeed, brought back the or-, iginal gloss to the treated area in a surprisingly satisfactory manner. ,

SIMPLYFYING OIL-REPLENISHMENTS [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 6 April 1928

; .SIMPLYPYING oil—REPLENISH-. MENTS Owing to the fact, that there is no' air-hole in the'conventional gallon oil tin. a great deal of oil is often wasted because the oil spurts out spasmodic ally by reason'of the uneven inrush, of air which takes place in the lubric ant as it leaves tlieHin. Because the majority of engine, breather pipes are rather small, the oil is often spilt. This waste can. be avoided if any oil carried on the car is taken from a drum or from another tin and poured into a special tin in-which; a small liol'e has been drilled in the top, with a compression tap inserted and sold ered into it. The. oil will flow freely from the tin, owing', to the air enter ing through the tap when opened, pouring in an even smooth stream.

OIL FROM CHASSIS LUBRICATION [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 6 April 1928

OIL FROM CHASSIS LUBRICATION Having found that the lubricant from a grease gun failed to circulate within certain chassis bearings-spring shackles and steering swivel bearings for instance (the latter in particular) one motorist lias for some-time been using thick oil instead of grease in the force pump. It is a great improve ment, for although some of it is even more prone, than grease to' escape from the ends of the bearings while it is being introduced, the oil that re mains creeps over the whole of': the surfaces instead of leaving all except a. mere streak bone-dry-whicii is what happens more often than nut wheij grease is used, as has repeatsiily been when dismantling grease lubricated parts. • * '''

The disadvantages of wet pickling are chiefly tlie corrosive action of the pickle, and the necessity of sow ing imimlediately after the seed is pickled.
