USE THE DASH LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

\ USE THE DASH LIGHT. The habit of neglecting to turn oh the d'sh light — or failing to replace it with a new one if the old bulb has burned out — is likely to result in ?serious trouble for the driver. When driving in the dark the operator is in the dark as to the exact speed he is travelling. He is likely to 'outdrive' his head'ights without knowing it, which mean? that he may be held up for speeding or cnughr in an accident. Besides, the ammeter or the oil pres sure {ranee rooid be registering: all kinds ' of tronble and he would never know it — until stranded. It is stnted that timber sufficient fo build fiO.OOO homes is used annually by the various mnnnfaoturinff divi sions of General Motors Go. (U.S.A.).

ROADS AND TYRES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

&OADS ANtf TYRES Aa one result cf research into tic question of the wear on tyres caused by the various types of road, the N.R.M.A. has received interesting data from abroad on the subject. Investigations carried bat by the - National Councils Highway Research Soard In Britain show .that concrete or brick roads cause tli' least tyre ?wear, the Icsb in weight of each forre Vielnp ai-nnt one ounce for each 500 miles' travel. Gravel roads in creased this rate of wear from two to seven times that amount, while macadam roads represented a loss of from 10 to 50 times thai of con crete oi brick. The tests on which these figures were based also proved that the wear on fror- tyrss was from 60 to 75 per cent less than on the rear.

THE TYRE OF THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

THE TYRE OF THE FUTURE It seems that before long ears. will be equipped with tyres which actually are nothing more than 'oversize' high-pressures masquerading as 'bal- loons,' 6ays 'The Light Car and Cyclecar.' An examination of the history of the balloon tyre is very significant. At first it was marketed in light-car sizes with a two ply cord foundation. This, it appears, was not robust enough*, for tnree piy covers soon made their appearance. These called for rather higher press-ires than their prototype, but still left room for improvement. To-day 'bal- loons' for light ears are mostly of the four-ply type, and a pres3nra of 301b or so is commonly considered to be correct. Who knows that by next year yet another layer of fabric may not be added, when cars will once again be fitted with what used to be called 'extra-heavy oversizes?' The journal believes that this de velopment would be appreciated by every light-ear user. It would bring almost complete immunity from punc tures, it...

THE WITNESS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

THE WITNESS I was standing on the parking and I saw the cars collide, and I went my way remarking it was strange that no one died. Johnson's dray hit Jimpson's fiivver, and the two, their nerves aquiver, turned ont language like a river,i language far from digni fied. Jiinpson sued the Johnson party, sued him. for two thousand pounds, and a bailiff, hale and hearty, sum moned me, on various grounds, witn him to the court I wended, and the trial L attended, while th» lawyers ripped and xended laws apart in tragic tones. In the witness chair I wondered, as I mildly testified, why the lawyers 6tormed and thundered,. hinting plainly that I lied; hi .ting, from across their table, that I never had been able to distinguish truth from fable, that I'd really never tried. They insisted, with much fury, that t had a moron's mind, pointing out to judge and jury I was deaf and colour blind; and they argued with precision that since I had clouded vision* what I said of the collision vvasn-'t wor...

HINTS ON CLEANING LEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

HINTS ON CLEANING LEATHER. Leather upholstery may be cleaned by wiping with a soft woollen cloth (cotton or flannel lint) saturated with a weak solution of water and ammonia Castile soap is equallr effective in the cleaning of leather, but petrol or sinii lar liquids cause cracking. A solution that is safe to use occasionally on leather is linseed oil thinned with a little vinegar. This is applied with a cloth and allowed to remain a few bours; then vriped off. To clean imitation leather, ivory soap and water are recommended for the re moval of spots, and an application of linseed or sweet oil, used sparingly, to brighten the finish.

SIMPLE, BUT ELUSIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

SIMPLE, BUT ELUSIVE. Many an owner has been worried by mysterious engine stoppage, due appar ently to lack of petrol when a subse quent inspection has p7ived that there was no shortage of fuel in the tank, that the jet and filter in the carburettor were not choked, neither was the supply pipo blocked. When this happens the source of the trouble is usually the stopping up of the air vent of the filler cap — a point which is often overlooked. The result, of course, ie the gradual production, of a vacuum over the fuel, thus preventing it from reaching the carburettor.

IMPROMPTU THIN WASHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926

IMPROMPTU THIN WASHERS. Sometimes a very thin washer is re quired to take up a small amount of wear at some particular part of the car It is quite impracticable to file down an ordinary washer to th« special degree of thinness needed, which is usually less than l-100th inch. It is, therefore, useful to know that the air-tight tinned iron cover soldered on certain sorts of cigarette tins is very suitable material for thin washers. The inner hole of the washer can be easily cut out with the point of a penknife with compasses or dividers, or, failing this means being available, the edge of a suitable-size coin can be used to mark off the hole. The outer edge of the washer is readily cut with scissors.
