V.R.C. DERBY. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 21 October 1916
V.R.C. DERBY. Kilboy is a good way ahead of his field in the Derby market, with Wolaroi and Ettcfrcd, equal, second in demand, and succeeded by Kastcourt, Mchi King, Stagcland, Lord Bobadil and Thana. It is up to Sydney horses to get a win at Caulfield to-day, for at the two days' racing at the meeting so far we have supplied five seconds. This is not a bad record in one way, but as they embraced three favorites, at 7 to 4, 9 to 4. and 11 to 2, there must be a fair number of Sydney flimsies floating about Bourke-strect just now. Amata, Bee and Orillia are the only mares left in to-day's Cup, and the New Zcalandcr seems the only one with any chanc; of joining Lady Medallist. Marvel Loch and Sweet Nell as lady winners during the last quarter of ,1 century.

ADJUSTING THE CARBURETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 21 October 1916
ADJUSTING THE CARBURETTER The importance that attaches to the proper attachment of the carburetter on a motor-cycle i-s perhaps not so clearly recognised as it should be. A marked difference sometimes exists, however, between the requirements of one engine and another where the raixin' am feeding of the fuel are concerned, and any ad justments made should be calculated to meet these particular requirements, and not those which, according to the law of averages woul- appear to be the best. The work thrown upon an engine varies very considerably in separate cases, and it often nroves imoossihlr m nrn,,M. for these differences by means of the throttl alone. Adjustments of a more permanent character arc needed, and their precise charac ter can only be determined to the best satis faction by actual test and careful attention to the results tiat are being obtained. Altering the size of the jet or the level of the petrol in the float chamber are the two expedients most commonly resorted to...
