Stude- bakj5rT^wia.gon specialists since' 1 852— have 'perfected the mechanical science of piittmg'just th ! e right amount of "dish" into their "wagon wheels to make" them run pn a plumb spoke. They have also figured out and put into; their" gears the. proper set and gather to make the -yvheels revolve freely and "chuck" between the skein collar and the! axle nut. This holds the grease in arid keeps it evenly distributed so that there is:no unusual wear pn the skeins, or the skein , collars or axle nuts. But all these advantages would count for nothing if the wagon could not -follow in- the, track of the automobile. If the wheels on one side run smoothly in the rut while those on -the other ride the ridjjjes— a-a vn the case of .wide track wagolis — the wagon pulls harder, the wheels do not run on plumb : spokes and on one sfde they are bearing, against v the axle nut; on the other side they bear' against the skein collar. There is no "chuck", the grease runs v puti Bflidyqur wagon is shorter lived/ •*>"••• • •' , So, in order that the advantages of set and gather will not be lost to iStudebaker wagon users, these wagons are bujit to fit the roads'—at ^a?t9Q^ pf which are. today tracked by the automobile and penses of the, Caa-.bap.dale' " sehppls " .Seyeral b,ills-Axere ; I - -fe E. were "autlioiized. allowed.
