Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 Excerpt: ... is a delicate instrument, and one frequently deranged. The commonest source of trouble is short-circuiting, due: 1. To breaking down of insulation, cracking in porcelain plugs, oil-soaking, deterioration of cement filling, or metallic impurities in mica plugs. 2. To fouling with soot between the electrode surfaces and spark points. Troubles due to the first cause demand renewal of the plug. Fouling with soot may generally be removed with gasoline. Preventives of fouling arc: 1. An annular space between the core insulation and the outer shell, producing a vortex, as is alleged, and allowing piston suction to remove deposits. 2. An outside spark pap, which will generally suffice to insure a a spark, but it does not prevent fouling between the spark points.

A Is the vheelrim; K aspoto or arm of the three-armed spider; C, sector for Bliding arms, 1) and E; D. throttling arm and handle; K. spark regulating handle. The throttle is opened hy movingrthn handle clockwise around the sector; the spark is advanced by moving its handle in the same direction. Circuit Wiring.--The principal points for examination are: 1. The terminals and binding posts. These should be firmly secured--all looseness being avoided--although crushing of the wires should be carefully guarded against. 2. The insulation which should be examined for breaks, flaws or rubbed areas. By this means leaks and short circuits will be avoided. Preparing to Start the Engine.--In preparing to start the engine of a gasoline motor carriage, it is necessary to be careful: 1. That the clutch is thrown out, so that the vehicle cannot start until desired. 2. That all parts of the lubricating system are in working order, all connections opene...Read Less
