CARE OF SPRING Will SAVE TIRE Improper Adjustment of Brakes Careless Driving and Under-inflation Are Bad. LUBRICATION IS NECESSARY Oil or Graphite Between Leaves Will Enable Springs to Take Up Shocks of Road and Prevent Racking of Parts. There is a very close relationship between proj-er care of the springs in an automobile and the mileage which the motorist receives from his tires. Properly adjusted, well lubricated springs will mean longer life to tires and to the entire car, while cracked or neglected springs will cause rapid deterioration of engine, body and tires. Many motorists believe that if they make a cursory examination of the tread and outer sidev.alls of a tire they are taking ample precautions asrainst undue wear and tire trouble. Yet there are many other things to which the average driver pays little attention which have a direct liearing on the service he gets from his tires. Harmful to Tires. Improperly adjusted brakes, careless driving, overloading, underiutla-tiou and. last but nut least, bad springs will all strip dollars off the tires every time the car is driven. Springs are placed in a car not only to make it more comfortable to ride In, but also to take up a major part of the road shocks and prevent racking of the various parts. When there ts a shock, such as comes when a wheel hits a rough spot in the road, the tires get it first. Then follow shocks to the wheels, axle, body, occupants and motor, with the springs in between to take up as much as invisible. Springs Need Lubrication. When the springs fail to function properly, all the shock has to be taken up through the tires, both in the initial shock and In the natural rebound. Lubrication of the springs is not difficult, and labor expended in this task will pay big returns. One of the best methods is dismantling the springs and lubricating them with graphite grease. First remove all the rust with an emery cloth. Another method is to lift the body of the car on jacks, and open the springs with a colo! chisel inserted between each leaf, squirting oil and greases in freely. A simpler method is to take an oil can and run It along the depressions in the springs, allowing the oil to flow out freely, and then rocking the car to open and close the leaves, working them back and forth, permitting the oil to work well back under each leaf.

Strips of Leather or Heavy Canvas Properly Inserted Will Hold for Several Days or Until It Can Be Fixed Permanently. When the low-gear friction band, on a popular light automobile, burns out after a long pull, it will be found practically Smiossible to get the clutch into high gear. When such an emergency occurs, a temporary re- LSATtCWNOUk STttie OF LI ATM6W Strips of Leather, or Heavy Canvas, Make it Possible to Get the Light Automobile Into "High When the Low-Gear Friction Band Burns Out. pair, that will hold for several days, or until permanent repairs can be made, is easily effected. The cover of the transmission case is removed with care, so that the gasket will not be broken. The band-adjusting screw, on the outside of the transmission case, is unscrewed until the low-gear friction band Is released from friction. A strip of leather, from a heavy shoe, or a piece of thick, tough canvas, is inserted between the low-gear band and the drum, as shown In the drawing. . Another strip of leather, or heavy cloth, 2 or 3 Inches long. Is rolled up and inserted between the coll spring and the flat leather band, in the manner indicated. Tightening the adjusting screw, until the low-gear friction band Is nearly tight, and replacing the trans mission cover completes the repair. Leo C. Shinn, Portland.
