PHONE GLASS! 329-GLAS (329-4527) Seven points Starting a cold motor Like people, car engines are reluctant to get going on cold mornings. It's a small wonder when near- zero temperatures thicken various lubricating oils and greases which makes it tougher for parts of the engine to move. Also, the colder the temperature, the less ef- ficient the battery becomes At zero degrees, for instance, the battery is only about half as efficient as on a normal summer morning Herewith is a list of tips from Champion Spark Plug Company These will keep voltage demands on your car's battery down during the vulnerable period when the battery loses much of its punch. 1. Tran- smission: To lessen the load on the starter, release manual shift transmissions by depressing the clutch pedal; place automatic transmissions in "neutral" before attempting to start the engine. 2. Electrical Acces- sories: Shut off lights, windshield wipers, defrosters, heater, radio, etc., before attempting to start the engine. This will assure maximum voltage available for both the starter motor and the igni- tion system. 3. Choking: While com- plete setting of hand choke is obvious, some drivers don't realize that most automatic chokes must be set "on" by depressing the accelerator before star- ting (Many cold weather starting failures are due entirely to this oversight.) 4. Pumping the Accelerator: An additional one or two pumps on the accelerator pedal will dump raw gasoline into the intake manifold and help get enough vaporized fuel into the cylinders during very cold weather. 5. Throttle Setting: When the starter is energized, the accelerator should be about half way down to get FOR v TROUBUfREE L DRIVING.-, VISIT THE EXPERTS!

SCENES LIKE THIS WILL BE COMMON SOON enough air rushing through the manifold to pick up the fuel and carry it into the cylinders. 6. Starter Motor: Energize the starter at relatively short intervals. Avoid grinding away or you may overheat the starter motor and cause excessive drain on the battery. 7. Shut-off: Place trans- mission in "neutral" and run engine at fast idle. When switch is depress accelerator to "flood" the engine. This will insure a supply of gas- oline in the cylinders for the next start.
