Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE 6 Your wipers need to be checked often Eight out of ten cars have unsafe windshield wipers, ac- cording to a recent survey by a major oil company. Why would such an impor- tant item an wiper blades be so neglected on such a high percentage of oafs? It's like a hole in the roof. People don't want to bother when its rain- when it stops raining there's no need to worry. Wiper blades go dead in six months or less due lo exposure to sun, wind and oily road film. When they go dead and start streaking the windshield, they should be replaced. Night driving is particularly dangerous when oncoming headlights are magnified in the smear caused by streaking wipers. When replacing the wiper blade, it's a good idea lo have the wiper ann pressure tested. If the tension is too weak, the arms can't do an adequate job. While you're at it, be sure you have your windshield wash- er solution checked, and refill- ed if necessary. You don't want to be out of washer solution just when you need it most. ATTENTION IS REQUIRED Snowmobiles, like children, need lots of attention. This young lad's father is running a quick "pre-lrip" check to insure safe going. It's a good idea to carry a basic tool set and extra spark plugs in the snowmobile's storage com- partments just in case. Give your snowmobile a chance Keep travel smooth Like an athlete getting ready for the season, a new snowmo- bile engine needs proper condi- tioning before it can perform at its best. Champion Spark Plug Com- pany advises that 10 or 15 hours of operation at part-throttle is the key to good performance thereafter. Snowmobile opera- tors whn run their brand new machines at full-throttle run the risk of damaging engines. A second cause of snowmo- bile engine problems, particu- larly in the ignition system, is using the wrong spark plug heat range. However, special- ized kinds of operation may indicate using specially design- ed spark plugs. For example, a snowmobile that's mostly oper- ated at full-throttle, such as racing, needs a spark plug of Automation has invaded driver testing field Towa has a head start on a new traffic safety program designed to provide identifica- tion and reinforcement of safe- driving attitudes and techni- ques. Called Drivo-TEST, it is the nation's first automated drivers' license test. The new examination, which scraps the traditional paper nnd pencil for automated audio-visual techniques, is be- ing used in DCS Moines. Iowa. DrivoTEST builds safe-driving attitudes by training as well as testing, because answers to the questions are explained. An applicant enters one of the 20 separate booths and presses a button that starts a color movie shown on a per- sonal TV set. The film dra- matizes a series of traffic situations that call for knowl- edge of legal and safe-driving requirements. The film stops at a planned moment in each situation and presents a multiple-choice question which the applicant answers with a push-button re- sponder. His choices are trans- mitted electronically to a cen- tral console where they are in- stantly scored. Another principal advantage of the DrivoTRST is that, un- lilce present methods, it teach- es as well as tesls. After each question, the film will tel! which answer was right and why. This procedure increases knowledge nnd builds safe- driving attilwles. DrivoTEST is not designed to replace the entire licensing procedure. Iowa will continue to administer individual vision and on-the-road examinations. a colder heat range to with- stand higher operating tem- peratures. A snowmobile that's run at lower speeds, such as trail rid- ing, needs a plug of a hotter heat range to prevent prema- ture plug fouling. For machines running in a variety of condi- tions, standard-design plugs arc recommended. Both fuel and oil should be of the quality the manufac- turer recommends for the en- gine. Mixing ratios of oil to fuel should be followed exact- ly. When mixing the elements, make certain both are warm. The mixing should be done hi a separate container and then poured into the vehicle's fuel tank. Placing unmixed fuel and oil directly into the tank is an invitation to trouble, say Champion engineers. Get the Jump on Wintr!
