THE FORD AND VALVES SKILLED RE-GRINDING WILL ADD TO ITS POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
THE FORD AND VALVES SKILLED RE-GRINDING WILL ADD TO ITS POWER. The fact that the Ford is a car whose original cost is low apparently deludes many owners into the belief that it may be knocked about indis criminately, and that.it will keep on going, though neglected, much longer than more expensive cars. Of the many essential tasks which become necessary from time to time, there is perhaps none which has a greater bearing on efficiency than that of grinding in the valves. RE-GRINDING VALVES. Many pages have at times been used in describing the correct method to be followed when grinding in the valves; but it is useless to attempt to follow these instructions if the valve seats and faces are badly pitted or burnt. Many owners use a very coarse grinding compound, and bear down hard on the valve during the grinding process in the hope that they will thus wear away -all in equalities in both valve and seat. No doubt this method would prove effec tive-in time. When the valves and seats ar...
MOTOR NOTES THE TOLL OF OVERLOADING EFFECTS NOT AT ONCE APPARENT, BUT INEVITABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 2 April 1925
MOTOR NOTES. THE TOLL Of OVERLOADING EFFECTS NOT, AT ONCE APPAR ENT, BUT INEVITABLE. Many happy-go-lucky drivers are inclined to scoff' when one points out to them the very bad effects which will eventually arise from the habi tual overloading of their cars. Never theless, even the best of steel will gradually 'deteriorate and crystalise if it is consistently subjected to aii overload which uses up its factor of strength and safety. The ill-effects of overloading on the springs may be measured almost exactly by the extent to which over loading is practised. Whilst certain parts of a motor vehicle will yield only. to one all-destructive abnormal strain, the effects on the.springs of overloading are in proportion to its duration and degree. The springs are scientifically designed to with stand a definite amount of load and deflection. Their length, thickness, and temper have all been determined on that definite basis. An overlaod on the springs immediately sets up harmful action ,in t...

Postal Charges MAY BE INCREASED [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925
Postal Charges MAY BE INCREASED. 1 Increases in wages, reductions -in workinig hours, and other :conces sions granted to employees by ° the Public Service Arbitrator in recent months, have increased by approxi mately £500,000 a 'year the cost of 1 carrying on the work of the Postal Department.

At present, as is. well known, the department Is 'in at a loss of about £200,000, and the deficit is likely to be greatly increased this year, by reason of the concessions granted to the employees.

THE FORD RACER HOW THE QUESTION OF IGNITION AND FLYWHEEL WEIGHT CROPS UP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 9 April 1925
THE FORD RIACE HOW THE QUESTION OF IGNITION AND FLYWHEEL WEIGHT CROPS UP. - In altering and tuning the stand ard model Ford to achieve high speeds, the enthusiast must not over look the ignition and the elimination of superfluous weight which does not aid balance. At speeds up to 35 miles an hour the Ford ignition system gives satis factory results. At greater speeds, however, the alternating current of the Ford magneto causes an irregu lar action that becomes increasingly evident at higher and higher speeds. Consequently, one of the first and foremeost important steps in build ing a Ford speed car, is to install some system of single-spark battery ignition system, or high-tension mag neto, thus eliminating the Ford mag neto as a necessary source of igni tion current. If the speedster is fitted with a starting and lighting system--or even with a storage battery-then we have no longer any need for the Ford low-tension magneto. And it is bet ter removed from the car. The rea sons for ...
