One of :the popular j springs; greater comfort in the sixes will appear at the show with this system of fuel feeding into the cylinders.

More Power—Less Weight Important among the improvements in the forthcoming automobiles will be tile increased use of aluminum alloys in order ultimately to increase what engineer,-; term the power-to-weight ratio in engine performance.

A way to increase ; in.i ryt;o:n must be made taikprcof. power, up to the present, has been per, no matter how slight the leak, the reshaping of the cylinder head In order to give a maximum of compression. High compression motors arc. almost universal now. But the engineers have practically reached the limit in high compression and now, to get, more pow- tlie ' glycerine will gradually cozo out and leave the motorist with a frozen system seme day.

Trouble with "alliminum allov; Sometimes a special marine grease, replacing the regular motor ctip grca'i!, will do the trick.

Such pistons will be noted with it In the pump, the grease on used ts not so much for lubrication as for keeping the pump tight. It! Is really a packing, not a lubricating, grease. Ordinary cup grease, intended for lubricatirii, has an oil base which dissolves! or Is softened readily by hot water. As a result the hot cooling solution weakens the greare, packing in tho pump and opens! this spot, to the danger c-f, leakage. I TtiereforD a water-proof grease is' recommended for use at this 1 point. I Tills has a tallow base and is used i widely in marine motors.

The cure for this, however, is a sort of plastic packing. material which might give relief If the scoring 1s- not too severe. Tills plastic packing Is a composition material which can be pressed Into the pump gland how- ing with the Ultimo or a small tool, and will fill up all dents, scorcsand grooves in the shaft When this Is done, the gland nut, thould be tightened up even more] than Is necessary under ordinary conditions.
