What Dual Valves Mean
to Pierce -AinrowjTrucks
HPHE Dual Valve principle marks
. as notable an advance as the
Worm Gear, which has revolution
ized motor truck propulsion, since
introduced by Pierce-Arrow in 1910 J
How Dual Valves Operate
By facilitating intake of gas and clearing the
exhaust entirely, they make possible a purer,'
' fuller gas charge. With double ignition, this
pure, rich mixture is fired simultaneously by
two sparks, assuring complete combustion. )
" What Dual Valves Do '
Their increased area for intake and exhaust,
their very quiet action because of short lift
and small diameter, decreases the liability to
warp and regrinding is seldom necessary.
This Means to Owners
Saving in operating expense, less loss of time
. less strain, fewer repairs, lower maintenance
costs and more money earned, as well as
- more saved.
