It often happens that when brakes have become a little worn a sharp pull on the hand lever is more Effective in a tight corner than pres sure wiili the foot. If, however, one is not accustomed to driving with the hand nearest the lever free, action is not so swift as the emergency de-1 mantis. Where the hand brake is cen tral a driver should be able to con trol tlie car perfectly with the right hand only, and it is useful if the horn; can be operated with the same hand, or better still, with the knee. Where the brake is on the right, the left hand should operate the Steering, and automaticelly take it up when sudden breaking is required.

LOOK AT THE VACUUM TANK AND CARBURETTOR [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 16 March 1928

LOOK AT THE VACUUM TANK AND CARBURETTOR ' : P The owner and service man ■ are often prone to blame the. engine lub ricating oil when excessive oil dilution is found to be present in a motor car engine. There are a considerable number of causes of excessive dilution which can be traced, not tc the oil, but to the mal-adjustment and mal functioning of the fuel supply sys tem. There are several opratinge con ditions which tend to cause exces sive crank-case dilution namely rich carburettor adjustment; excessive use af the clioke in starting; excessive idl ing of the engine; or the use of a mo tor spirit that is not highly volatile. These can, for the most part, be cor rected by care on the part of the Iriver. Then these features nre ade juately taken care of and excessive lllutlon still occurs, it is advisable to ilieek over the fuel supply system to letermine •whether there is a leaky :arburettor float or a "sticky" vacuum anlc mechanism.
