Turn Over Motor by v
Hand at Times to
Test the Machine
. Motorists who would be sure that
their car is as is as it should be should
occasionally turn over the motor of the
ear by hand, instead of using the elec
tric starter. This will disclose many
ills, according to A. . "Dad" Foss of
the Oilson' Garage in Portland, who has
played with automobiles since the day
when Haynea and the boys were making
them with one and two cylinders.-'
This authority on electrical equipment
says that the starter has added still ano
ther point to the category of ills that

declared. "Dad. '" '' i '-.L-t.m

"If he has not done that for six or
eight months and has run his car con
siderably, be will find that the first
or second cylinder can hardly be moved
against the compression. He braces
himself to lift the next and finds that
it slips away from him, so little is the
compression.. '
: "A fourth or fifth cylinder may not
work quite so easily but still is much
easier handled than it. should be.
' "The lesson, of course, is obvious
those cylinders which do not work hard,
inwhich there isno compression, need
immediate attention. Kither, the rings
do not lay properly or the valves need
grinding. ''
"To let them go on in that manner
is the quick way to heavy expense bills,
the leaking piston rings mean that when
starting, condensed gasoline vapor, leaks
past the rings and mixes with the oil,
rapidly breaking down its lubricating
qualities. Lubrication, therefore, is
impaired and the results are a guess.
Another Trouble Seen.
"Still another trouble, resulting from
the lack of compression, is the explo
sions of greatly varying intensity. In
other: words, the power in the different
cylinders is so uneven that the-rnotor!
hobbles, which is excessive strain on'the'i
bearings and every part of the ear. "

the viewpoint. Four years ago when
almost every car was hand-started, that
was nothing agninHt the Tiuto. ' It was
the accepted thing and starters" were
still , an experiment. Today .drivers
bring their car. iu to have the starter or
the battery repaired, but Tather lose the
use of it for days, whore much work is
