WOOL REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925

WOOL REPORT Pitt, Son & Badgery Ltd. re port: From repbrts received from oversea it is obvious that manufacturers are working on their accumulated stocks, which are of varying extent, and as on the average there are not heavy supplies awaiting consumption it cannot be long before further large quantities will be needed to keep the wheels turning. Evidences are not wanting that were sales in progress. at the moment orders would be placed upon the mar. ket for execution at prices which would show a distinct improvement on the levels which were current here at the last auctions held, and it is to be hoped the position will gain strength during the remainder * of the recess. We think there 'is justification for a hopeful view to be taken of the future Not .that any boom in prices will take effect, but a stabilisa tion at a level that will pro ride.,remunerative returns for growers. With the prospects of another large clip shortly to be shorn and a considerable carry over of last...

COLD WEATHER ADJUSTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925

COLD .WEATHER ADJUST MENTS In a rather unreasonable spirit, many owners seem to imagine that their cars should give uniformly excellent per formance throughout the year, irrespective of the most extreme climatic conditions. The care ful man, however, recognises that especially in winter time, certain modifications of treat inent are necessary if he is to get the best possible results from his car. To begin with, it not unfrequently happens that some slight alteration be comes necessary in the cooling system of the car, for the in land climate of Australia is subject to extremes and the k cooling system which works satisfactorily at high summer temperatures will often be found too effective in the depth ? of a frosty winter. There are several ways of combating this - tendency towards over-cooling. One of the simplest is to place during the winter months, some sort of, a screen over a portion of the radiator, so that its ef fective cooling surface is di minished.' A neat and simple fo...

AN OVERLAND TEST. Remarkable Figures. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925

AN OVERLAND TEST. Remarkable. Figures. We hear much these days about phenomenal petrol econ omy but the results obtained in a test held last week by Messrs. Overland Sydney Ltd. bids fair to equal if not sur pass any petrol consumption test ever held in New South Wales. Thirty-seven Standard Overland Cars were supplied with 2 gallons of petrol each and sent over various routes under official observation-and the average .was recorded as 43.2 miles per gallon. This is a remarkable result, inasmuch as the test was carried out in various centres of New South Wales. The highest record was 63.2 miles per gallon by Mr. A. F. Bartley of Cootamun dra. Mr. W. U. Harris of Gloucester, registered 59.3 miles per gallon, and Mr. N. J. Patton, of Tumut, attained 57 miles-per gallon. The lowest record was 30.25 miles per gallon. The whole test was carried out under official ob servation and each competitor filled in a certificate which was signed by the observer-the originals of these certificates ...

PAINT AND CORROSION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925

PAINT AND CORROSION. Most of us look upon paint and varnish from the point of view of maintaining an ele gance of appearance as far as 4 the car is concerned, but such i coatings after all were origin ally meant for something more useful than adornment, and that is the preservation of the materials which they cover. However much the motorist may like to have a car which is resplendant with new and shin ing paint, he should not over look the painting of those chas sis parts which need this at tention for their preservation from corrosion. The main and cross members of the chassis, axles, springs and brake-rods are all liable to become badly rusted if they are neglected in definitely. Once a year it is a wise plan to give such parts a coating of anti-corrosive paint which may be bought at any paint merchant's. Before it is applied, the surfaces should be washed clean and then sponged down with turpentine or petrol in order to remove grease and rust. The honeycomb of the radia tor is a...

MOTOR NOTES DOUBLE CLUTCHING. Its Intricacies Explained. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 June 1925

,MOTOR NOTES DOUBLE CLUTCHING. Its Intricacies Explained. Not a few motor writers em. ;...phasise to the amateur that the only really, scientific way of attaining silent gear changing of all speeds, is the. process known as double clutching and although - such writers give rule-of-thumb instructions for carrying out this .procedure, the novice-finds it hard to 'take an intelligent interest in it,-un less he is also acquainted with the precise- effects of this me thod .of operating the controls: We shall, therefore, deal first of all with the interior economy of the gear-box, so that the reader will be able to construct a mental picture of what hap pens when he carries out our instructions. It is hardly ne cessary to describe the reasons which make the gear box es sential in the construction of - any car driven by an internal combustion engine. In brief, the gear-box enables the power of the engine to be amplified by leverage, so that a greater turning power is exerted on the driving...

WHAT IS AN EFFICIENT MIXTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 11 June 1925

WHAT IS AN EFFICIENT MIXTURE. Opinions differ as to what consti tutes an efficient mixture, that is to say, the desirable combination of air and petrol which should be admitted to the engine. The man with a han kering after great petrol economy often blinds himself to the inefficiency of his mixture, simply because he is able to get along more or less satis factorily with it and at the sa-me time to achieve a very high petrol ihileage. But high petrol mileages, although desirable, should not be attained to the detriment of all other efficient factors. The efficient mix ture not only allows the car t, tira vel a proper and reasonable mileage to the gallon, but it should also give quick acceleration and steady in crease in speed power in proportion to the throttle opening. Only an ex pert setting of the jets-aid air regu lator in relation to one another can cause the engine to suck in at all speeds a mixture which bears a pro perly balanced proportion of air and petrol. Anything in th...
