DOOR RATTLE IN THE "FORD". [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
DOOR RATTLE IN THE "FORD". The Ford is not the only car which is subject to rattles, but many Ford owners will agree that the rear door in this make of car is prone to- omit unorthodox noises unless some pre cautions are taken. If the rear doors of the Ford persistently rattle and refuse to remain shut when the car is driven- over bad roads,. the diffi culty may generally be traced to sag ging of the back part of the body, which fault tends to pull the doors' away from the front part. The reme dy is to see that the two front and the two centre body bolts are perfect ly tight and theh to remove the two rear bolts and have a helper employ a steel bar, to get behind the car and lift the body off the -frame as far as possible. Flat steel washers should next be inserted on the bolts betwen the body and, the frame. This procedure - will almost invariably prove effective, but sometimes it will be found necessary to employ new and longer bolts.
BUMPER BAR AND WINDLASS COMBINED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
B1UMPER BAR AND WINDLASS COMBINED. A, motorist in the North of Queens land who has had rough pioneering work to do in his car has hit upon a novel method of combining a hand windlass and- a bumper bar on the front of his vehicle. He makes use of a stout piece of steel piping which is carried in the form of bumper bar, but instead of being supported by the usual standards, is carried in two bearings so that the bar itself can be rotated in its standards. At one end of it provision is made for the fitting of a ratchet handle which is carried in the car when not in use, along with a length of rope. Should the car become bogged, it is an easy matter to attach one end of the cable to the nearest tree or stump and then by means of the lever already re ferred to,, to drag it out of the mire by means of this bumper bar wind lass.
A HOME MADE INSTRUMENT BOARD LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 25 February 1926
A HOME MADE INSTRUMENT BOARD LIGHT. Whilst many cars are supplied with dash board lights as items of standard equipment, it is often use ful to have even a second lamp of this sort which will throw its illu mination directly on to the speedom eter, the ammeter or oil gauge as the case may be. A simple and efficient light of this sort, which when made with a little care will look quite as neat as a more or less expensive bought fiting, can be made by the owner driver who has a few tools. The body of the lamp is constructed out of an ordinary twelve bore brass cartridgecase, one side of which is cut away and the spent percussion cap knocked out, the hole left in the case forming a re cess for the contact of one epd of the bulb. The open end is neatly plugged with a wooden or fibre disc Iheld in place at the sides by a cou ple of small screws. A hole is dril led through the centre of this plug and through this passes the other contact which can be made from a small brass screw counter ...
