NEW MODELS ON THE ROAD TEST OF 496 C.C. SPORTS NEW HUDSON HILL-CLIMBING AND STEERING ABILITY PROVED [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
NEW MODELS ON THE ROAD TEST OF 496 C.C. SPORTS NEW HUDSON HILL-CLIMBING AND STEERING ABILITY PROVED The sports model, twin-port New Hudson, of 496 C.C., was given a road test this week. An interesting feature of this machine is the total enclosure of all working parts, which ensures that dust and mud are kept out, and grease and oil kept in. This plating over everything but the carburettor and the top of the battery is chiefly a utility measure, but one that should be appreciated, particularly by women riders. After the run the engine plates were removed, but no trace of dust could be found on the working parts. Also there was no trace of oil Reserve Power on Hois Thought the machine looks heavy. the manufacturer has obtained a bal- pleasure On the model tested the ex- ?n&ust lift was found to be a trifle stiff when starting, otherwise the motor "turned over" quite easily. No vibra- tion was noticed, and silence was a ? bottom, and this was caused through £& rider mi...

WHAT THE PLUGS REVEAL Faults Diagnosed at a Glance [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser and Register — 26 February 1931
WHAT THE PLUGS REVEAL Faults Diagnosed at a Glance Everyone knows what an oily ping looks like. Over-lubrication, worn piston rings and continuous running on small throttle openings an tend to induce excessive on into the combustion chamber. The usual result is that the plug points bectane bridged by a drop of oil, or oil carbonaceous matter, which pro vides a direct path to earth, co that the current no longer has to jump the plug points in the form of a spark. In some plugs—particularly those of the purely racing type^the insulation at the business end of the plug is apt to become coated with a similar oily substance; and when that matter ex tends from the central electrode to the plug body the result is exactly the same, though the plug points may ap pear to be clean. Degrees of Oiliness The exact opposite of an over-oiled plug is indicated by a dry, rusty, red deposit on the exposed end of the plug body; but though it indicates a dry plug, which is perfectly harmless, it does no...
