WILKIE : DETROIT Wl -- Frictionless bearings that require no lubVi- cation apparently are coming iii 'or wider use in automobiles. Initially the bearings have jeen tested on automobile front ends. They have been used.for knuckle and ball joints, especially in steering mechanisms. The frictionless bearings are made of strong plastic and cotton strands impregnated with a phenolic plastic. The manufacturer says they can replaci" many conventional metal-tq- metal bearings. In a recent test the bearings .were used in approximately Â· 1200,000 m i l e s of simulates .ravel without lubrication. They showed no signs of appreciable vcar or oxidation. * * * * ANOTHER IXNOVATlMSf may be the relocation of exhaust mufflers. Ward's Automotive reports says one loading car maker is conducting experiment with the exhaust system at the front end. "Information is the V-8 installations would have mufflers standing upright under e a c h front fender," Ward's says., It adds that silencing resonators would be placed, one on top of the other, on the front grille floor. The short exhaust discharging pipe would be well forward beneath the radiator grille, pointing rearward. * * * * CLAIMED FOR THE new exhaust system, says Ward's, is a sharp reduction in back pressure, making for more power and possibly less fuel consumption. The agency notes that in some states rear-end exhaust, is required by law. It says' If the laws remained unchanged r e a r discharging pipes would have to be connected to the vertically mounted mufflers. It adds that the r e a r * discharging systems as pres'. cntly designed are expensive and inefficient nnd Intcrfer* with good car frame construo- tion practice.
