Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta TEK THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, It, 192Q: Exhaust Echoes Garage Gossip NEWS OF WORLD With the Motorists oi South Alberta .Good Rrte is io Bare Tires Mt4 Kims Inspected Often Bent rims are a direct cause of rial cuts, oi tires blowing from the riifl, and of the breaking of the wire cables at the.base of the tire. Often times motorists canbot understand why tires should "blow" when they are dri-ring along slowir. The facts of the case aro that the overstrained carcass has reached the limit of its endurance from prcvioas abuse and has given 'Many motorists, were io ei- amlris the wheels on their cars, would be surprised to notice that their rims are bent alous the edges. These boat rini naneu are ordinarily little thought of, yet they cause a goodly percentage of tire trouble. :Wlien the wheel hits a frog or a switch of.a slreet car track or a hole there is a tendency to flatten the rim. especially it the lire 1ft The rim's support, however, is essential to the llfs of tho tiro.., If it is bent so that It does not Jit the tire and allows the side walls to bulge, tho motorist may know that trouble Is to be expected unless he takes immediate precautions.

To make the ordinary shift is really the most important for the driver to know. -Shifting from to second and second to high is. nor- in ally an easy matter, as the engine speed dies down at about the proper rale to make the engagement when the clutch is depressed. Shifting the other way, however, rrom higher speed to lower, requires a little-more iaiperlenca to do it properly. In fact 'it takes a good driver to make proper shift from high to second soles at s. rate of fifteen or twenty miles an hour. The Average driver has to drop between speeds of fifteen and ten miles and hour, to make the shift, and Inexperienced drivers have to even drop below ten miles. The trick in shifting to lower speeds is to depress the clutch, pull the. gear shift lever into neutral, Quickly speed up the engine by a (ouch on the ac- celerator pedal with the clutch in and complete the shift into the lower gear with the clntch again disengaged. This requires a little practice to set smoothly and to do well at speeds around eighteen or twenty miles an hour, out ivhen once learned it Is very useful because it allows a shift to be made ou a hill without dropping the momentum of the car to such a point that it is often necessary to go into first speed on a hill that could be negotiated, easily on second with a good start.

As one of the bright boys ot.the row has it, there's .a way you can fii it. Very .likely the brake lining has become coated with 6il-or greaie which acts as a lubricant. This condition is dangerous, for It may causs the brakes to slip when applied. At the earliest portunity the lining and the brake drums should be- wiped clean with kerosene. Or the brafee lining may have be- come worn eo that insufficient pres- sure Is brought to bear against the revolving metal dmm, and the car cannot be stopped quickly. A few adjustments, which any mechanic can mafce while you wait, will often com- pensate for the reduced thickness of tho worn lining. H the lining has become worn be-j yond the margin of safety, it is best to take no chances with safely, but to have the brakes re-lined. In the selection ot new brake lining, the mo. torist should be guided by the experi- ence of the leading Automotive engi- neers who have made numerous analy- ses and teats of various kinds ot brafco lining material.

POOR ADJUSTMENT OF VALVES CAUSES KNOCK There occasionally develops in an engine normally, quiet in operation, a tapping or knocking, fi'hlch Is due to maladjustment of one or''two ot tha valve tappets. For iiuiet operation of the tappets, there must not be severe impact between tappet and valve stem. If the tappet is moving fast before it commences to lift the valve, the im- pact will be severe and. there'will, he no noise. The tappet should be ad- justed so as very nearly, to touch .tho valve step.
