TIMELY HINTS. A TOOL FOR FORD VALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 April 1925
TIMELY HINTS. A TOOL FOR FORD VALVES. Many new owners of Ford cars are perplexed, when taking off the'cylin der head for the first time, to find two small holes in the valve head in stead of the customary slots provided for grinding. A special tool is made for valve grinding by the Ford Co., but the nearest depot may .be some miles away, and the owner-driver may be put to considerable inconve nience before the tool can be pro cured. A satisfactory make shift can ) be made from two pieces of stout b wire, such as motor-cycle spokes, about five inches long, bending them with pliers, to the necessary shape, and flattening the ends which form the handle, and soldering them toge C ther. These can be used in a screw ) driver handle, or, better still, in a ) hand or breast drill. SIMPROMPTU THIN WASHERS. ) Sometimes a very thin washer, is ) required to take up a small amount_ ) of wear at some particular part of the car. It is quite impracticable to file down an ordinary washer to the spec...
MOTOR NOTES SOME TIPS ON BEARINGS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 16 April 1925
MOTOR NOTES SORE TIPS ON DEAlINGS Bearings which are adjustable are at times liable to become seriously damaged, either because of excessive play developing, or because they are adjusted improperly. Front wheel bearings- are 'very often, adjusted wrongly, the condition calling for early replacement. These bearings should be adjusted so that ,there is no perceptible "shake" in the front wheel.' This may be tested by gripping the wheel at opposite points and twisting it back and forth. The wheel should turn freely on its bearings after the adjustment is made. A well-balanced wheel on a correctly adjusted bear ing should be free enough, to allow the weight of the tyre valve cup. to swing it to a downward position. It is a good plan to test again after tightening the lock-nut, because this sometimes disturbs a fine 'adjust ment. If some of the balls of a cup-and cone bearing require replacement, it is poor policy to replace only the ob viously worn or broken ones. New balls may be sligh...

Entertainment at Acton. Marzenno the Great and his Eastern entertainers held an entertainment at Acton on 7th April, (writes our cor respondent), and judging by the recep. tion he got from his audience I can safely say everyone present appreci ated this master magician's work. Handicapped as he was in such a small hall with no curtains or wings he gave a wonderful exhibition of up-to-date conjuring and illusions. His Radium Chamber I must say is (ne of the big gest and most mysterious illusions ever performed on or off the stage, which holds you spellbound from start to finish. He then exposed the table and screen mystery which has puzzled Australia ever since he came here; his spirit cabinet is a mystery supreme. Be next \submitted a strongly made box to a committe from the audience to examine freely inside and out. Mar zenno then entered the box and was locked and nailed in securely, a screen was drawn across and in a few seconds he came in the front door, on request ing the commi...
