Portland Dealers Enter for Total of
2 9 Different Passenger Cars
and Nine Trucks.
Portland automobile dealers will hold
an Interesting automobile and truck
show at the Salem state fair, which be
gins tomorrow and continues to next
Saturday, inclusive. The automobile
and truck exhibit will be in the old
an article on "'Valve Inspection and
Grinding," in August Motor. It is quite
well known by many motorists that
not all engines run better after the
valves have been ground, a fact which
is attribued to the unnecessary grind
ing which makes for leaky valves.
The writer points out how one may
distinguish a valve that leaks from
one that does not and tells how only
the faulty ones should be ground in.
He says: "On a properly cooled engine
and one where the valves are properly
timed, it may be accepted as a general
rule that valves which are evnly
sooted over and therefore have per
fectly black heads, are holding, while
those which are red or brownish on top
or show the metal plainly, without a
covering of soot or carbon. ar leaking.
By observing the tops of the valve
heads as soon as the' cylinder head is
removed and then carefully inspecting
the face of the valve and the seat, one
will quickly Learn to tell what Is
"The reason for the difference in
the looks of the tops is simple and
obvious upon a little thought. Dur
ing the power stroke of the piston
the burning gases are under high
pressure. If there is the slightest
leak at any point around'the face of
the valve, the gases will force their
way through at terrific speed and
carry away any carbon which may
have been formed on the top of the
valve near the leak, as well as on
the casting near the valve seat, leaving

Prior to last June 1 there wasn't a Republic truck in the whole fleet of the Warren Construction company, road

Among the features of the show will

shown in public for the first time, will

Valuable Information by Writer in
August Motor.
It is just as Important to know when
not to grind a valve as to know when
grinding is necessary, is the sound
advice given by Arnold P. Yerkes in
much the same way as the gases from
the burning powder charges in a high
power rifle or "cannon gradually erode
the metal of the rifle or cannon barrel
by escaping past the projectile before
it gets fully under way. The paths
cut by thes gases in either case look
almost as though the metal had been
melted out and there is undoubtedly a
certain amount of melting of the metal
bronght about by the hot gases.
"The high temperature of the s
caping gases also causes a different
color of the metal around a leaky valve
in .many cases. Very frequently a
leaky valve will have a reddish appear
ance, like burned clay or like a furnace
grate often shows after being under
a very hot fire for some time. This is
not an infallible rule for detecting a
leaky valve, but on many engines it is
a very reliable indication."
Part to Be Repaired Should . Be
Brought tip to Temperature.
For any ordi-iary Job wire solder is
the easiest to handle and the most
convenient. It can be placed right on
the spot to be mended, and it melts
under comparatively slight heat. In
soldering anything it should be rigor
ously cleaned before the actual work is
begun. The temperature of the whole
Job should be -aised to the desired
point, after which it is easy to run a
whole seam with a single movement of
ths iron. In making a repair, the spot
desired to be treated should be brought
to tho proper temperature for melting
the solder. It is best to have the job
so placed that the molten solder will
not run to the other parts of the
mechanism, but will lie right in the
spot where it is needed.

During all the years the Ford Model T One Ton Track has been on the market, we have never had one
complaint of rear axle trouble. We have had no complaints of motor trouble. As the motor and the rear
axle are the vital fundamentals in a motor truck, we have the right to conclude that the Ford One Ton Truck
has not only met the demands of business, but has done so in a satisfactory and economic way There is no
other evidence so convincing as that which comes from long practical experience. Ford One Ton Trucks
are serving along all industrial and commercial line. You will find them everywhere. If these statements
were not facts, the demand for the Ford One Ton Truck would not be as large as it is, because people are
not buying trucks which do not give service. Coupled with the dependability of the Ford One Ton Truck
in all classes of usage, comes the economy in operation and maintenance. On the farm, in factory delivery,
for the merchant, manufacturer, and contractor, in these days of modern business methods, this worm
drive One Ton Ford Truck has become an actual necessity. Leave your orders with any of the Authorized
Dealers mentioned below, and you will be assured of prompt attention.

Vermont Town Maintains Roads by
Its Own Motor Track.
Although It has only 700 inhabitants,
the town of Barre, Vt., is setting a
worthy example for larger municipal!
ties in the building of highways. This
village recently demonstrated its en
terprise by purchasing a motor truck
for use In maintaining the roads in
Its district. The truck' is a Garford
two-ton model equipped with a steel
dump body and a hydraulic hoist. That
a town of this size has proved itself
so keenly alive to the advantages of
proper highway facilities speaks well
for the spirit of its taxpayers. It is
evident from this and other recent
sales that the good roads movement
has opened a new and fertile field
for the motor truck dealer.
