MOTOR NOTES Overheated and Underheated Cars [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925

MOTOR NOTES I . 1 Overheated and Under-. heated Cars Overheating is a common trouble which besets many motorists. Some times it arises from an inherent de fect~ in the, design of the car, or its unsuitability for use in a warm cli mate without some modiqfication of its circulating and cooling system. Neglect, not infrequently is at the root of the matter, and if the radiator is never drained and rinsed,?clean, the scale is sure to form in thick layers. Not only does this scale par tially obstruct the circulation of the cooling water, 'but it also forms an insulating layer on the inner sur faces of the radiator tubes, thereby retarding the radiation of the heat which must be dissipated. Whilst on the subject of the radi ator, it will not be untimely to draw attention to the fact that heayy ex ternal accumulations of mud in the honeycomb will engender similar re sults. If the radiator becomes partly fill ed up with mud splashed up from the road, ,clear it by squirting the hose through...

The Patron of the club for the sea son 1924 was heartily thanked by the committee and members for his loyal support and untiring energy to for ward the great Austral...

POINTS ON REAR-BRAKE MAINTENANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925

POINTS ON REAR-BRAE.E MAINTENANCE. Neglect of the means provided for lubricating the brake cam-shafts of rear-whel brakes is responsible for the reduction of braking efficiency-in a large proportion of-cars. It is no use having' the. brakes properly ad justed if they will not operate freely, and the most frequent cause of stiff ness is unlubricated- cam-shafts. These are often found, when disman tled, to be bone dry and coated with rust. On some cars it is by no means easy to get at the greasers or oilers usually, provided on the, brake cam shaft brackets, but their inaccessi bility is no excuse for not attending to -them periodically--at least once a month. Not only is braking effi ciency reduced by. rusty cam-shafts, but it is often the case that., the brake-shoes will not clear the drum, the relief springs not being strong enough -to move the shafts back in their bearings when the brake pedal or lever is released. There may thus be ill-effect in two ways; the brakes may be less ....

SPRING SHACKLES THAT RATTLE OTHERS THAT ARE TOO TIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925

SPRING SHACKLES THAT RATTLE OTHERS THAT ARE TOO TIGHT. Mysterious noises may arise from lateral play in the shackles of the front springs. They may resemble and be diagnosed as a bonnet ,or inud-guard rattle, as a loose under shield, or even as an engine or radi ator insecurely fixed to the frame. In the latter case the noise is quite a heavy thud. The bolts and nuts of the shackles should not be so tight as to remove even the slightest -shake; the shac kle-plates should not only be free to turn easily, but should have a faint lateral play as well, otherwise they will be stressed unduly when one front wheel lifts in relation to the other. But a sixteenth of an inch should be the maximum amount of play if noises from this source are to be avoided.

THE "DINKUM OIL." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 26 March 1925

THE "DINRUM OIL" To use poor oil because it may be a shilling or two cheaper a gallon than good is a penny-wise-pound foolish policy. Every driver of a car should know and appreciate that there is no economy whatever in us ing cheap and inferior oil. In these days good oils are so well known by their brands that there is no diffi culty in getting the right lubricant. Just the same, it is sometimes worth while knowing how a few simple tests can be made. One method is to place a drop of each of the oils to be tested on a piece of clean glass, slanting the glass so the drops will run and spread well over the surface, and then allow ing the oils to stand and dry up na turally. A good oil will dry and gum up sooner than a poor oil, as a rule. Acid in an oil. is detrimental. As a rule it can be detected by put ting a little oil in a shallow depres sion in a piece of sheet copper; the depression can be formed with a few light blows with the ball end of a machinist's hammer., If acid-is pre...
