LEAKS AND THE WATER PUMP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926
LEAKS AND TTHE WATER PUMP. One very usual source of leakage in the circulation system of the car is at the water pump in those models which are fitted with such an ad junct to the cooling system. The cause of this is due not only to worn out packing at the. glands of the pump, but also at the lubrication of the pump with too thin a grease. The grease softens under the heat of the engine and allows the water to work its way out. The obvious reme dy is to use a somewhat heavier grease, whilst when water drips through the nut that holds the pack ing on the shaft, the nut should be screwed up until the dripping stops. If this tightening up is ineffective it will be necessary to take off the nut and to insert new packing. Pr proper packing is not available then strands of lamp wick heavily greased and closely packed into the recesses in the packing nut wll be found to answer the purpose very well.
MOTOR NOTES WATCH THE SPRING CLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926
'MOTOR NOTES WATCH THE SPRING CLIPS. There are two common causes of spring breakage apart from over speeding on bad roads, and these are unlubricated spring leaves and loose spring clips. If the leaves are not kept properly supplied with lubricant between their inner faces, then of course, instead of each leaf working independently the whole spring be comes one piece .of metal and loses its strength and its resiliency. But it is equally important to see that the clips binding the spring leaves to gether are kept thoroughly tight. At least once a month the careful motor ist should inspect the clips to make sure that they are not loose and if there is the slightest play it should be taken up at once. In carrying out this adjustment the only thing to guard against is the possibility of stripping the. thread off the screw Otherwise, clips should be as tight as possible. It is a good plan to use a spring washer in order to prevent vibration from causing the bolt and nut to loosen. If the...

NIGHTLIGHT FOR MOTOMETER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 February 1926
NIGHTHIGHT FOR MOTOMETER. The motometer is something more than a finishing touch to the radiator cap for it tells the motorist when his engine is at an efficient running tem perature and gives timely warning. of sudden overheating'troiubles which may be due to lack of water or oil, or to an over-heated`, spark 'or the accidental closing-'of th&7 radiator shutter. 'For these reasons the dri ver should cultivate ;the habit "of glancing every now2 and .then at the motometer, just+ as he4 looks"instinct ively at the speedometer-or- the am' meter. But at "night-time, nilless some lighting apparatus is fitted, the' motohieter' as ` a warning signal . be comes useless, and the car mty. be driven for :miles, although the ther monieter: is' hoverin;g rouid' boiling point and there is an urgent, need for the addition of water or oil. However, it is a simple ;matter. for the handyman to fit to, his .car.a small light--which- illuminates--the :motor meter without causing . aniy' glare w...

OIL ON THE BANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 February 1926
OIL ON iTHE BANDS. It, not: infrequently= happens that one 'or'even both brakes are rendered practically useless simply because oil has found.its. way; on. to the fabl: ric of tlihe bands and the ;surface of the brake ind'. so prevents the,:bands from gripping.. This oil or grease leaks out generally. , through, the axle tubes from the differentiaL hous ing and one of the best reinedies for the trouble is to fit iew felt washers; However, if the.motorist persists in filling .the rear axle -housing. :to too high a level with lubricant,. even the 'best fitting of washers will .not suf fice to obviate the .fault. -.A quick method of. giving ,immediate .treat ment to the 'bands when ,they b'e come sodden with oil is to make, a copious application of.petrol or kero sene, preferably" the former..' This has the effect of diluting the oil and allowing friction once again to assert itself. To effect a permanent remedy the only reliable niethod is to remove the bands and to steep them in pe t...
WHEEL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 February 1926
WHEEL MATTERS. Unduly rapid wear of tyres is in almost every case traceable to an error in wheel alignment. In very glaring cases the normal mileage of. a tyre may be reduced by half. If the error is sufficient to produce such an alarming result, it is gener ally noticeable to' anyone taking the trouble to examine the wheels at all closely, but if. the wheels are only slightly out of parallel a great deal of harm may be. done, and it is a serious matter if the life of a tyre is even reduced by, one or two thousand miles. To correct pr;,perly a serious want of alignment or to detect a comparatively small diver gence, something more reliable than the eye is necessary. But nothing very elaborate is called for. Two strips of wood about 7 feet long with a small hole near each end, and about 30 feet of twine are sufficient. The holes in the strips of wood must be exactly the same distance apart, which is ensured by placing one strip on the other and boring both at the same time. The.twine...
MOTOR NOTES BRAKE MECHANISM GAITER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 February 1926
MOTOR NOTES I BRAKE MECHANISMI GAITER. A device can be made for each joint that will last the entire life of the car, keep out the grit and save all bother of cleaning. If you possess discarded gloves with the palm and back intact, or can get some thin soft leather, you are "all set." 1 From this soft leather cut stripis three or four inches long. In shape the strip will look something like! a small snake that has swallowed an orange, for the joint this leather strip or "boot" is to cover is mich larger in circumference than the rod or lever which it joins.- The "boot" should be a quarter of an inch w?ider at each point than the circumference of that portion of the rod, lever, and joint which it is to cover. From the middle point of the broadest part of this- strip, on each side, make a slit crossways of the strip leaving at the centre about an inch of uncut. leather These slits allow the edges of over lap when the "boot" is bent about the joint and prevent wrinkling. Clean the part...
