Spring Is Time to Get Car Into
Shape for Use During En
tire Summer Season.
F Irrt Question to Bs Decided It Wheth
er There Is Any Part of Mechan
ism Needing Repair That
Owner Cannot Give.
It used to be the fashion for village
debating societies to discuss at need
less length the thrilling question of
■whether the pleasures of anticipation
are greater than those of realization.
We need not enter Into this now. hut
certainly the present season, with Its
anticipations of the Joyous time Just
ahead, is not the least pleasurable of
the motorcar owner's year.
But If the full enjoyment of these
coming days of spring Is to be realized
the car owner must give his vehicle
some careful attention ut the present
The first question that must lie de
elded In undertaking the spring over
haul la whether there Is any vital part
of the mechanism that requires atten
tion which the owner does not feel able
to give. Does the rear axle need over
hauling? Is the transmission good for
another season? I)o the engine hear
ings require adjustment? If the car
must go to the service station for some
replacement or repair, take It today.
As a beginning of the work that you
Intend to do yourself make a careful
list of all parts and equipment that
you are going to need. Gather the vari
ous things you expect to use. cotter
pins, nuts, holts, valve-grinding com
pound. patches, cement, waste, gas
kets. grease, graphite, oils, kerosene,
valve spring, lifter, etc.
Cleaning Come* First.
With the materials all gathered and
ready to hand, the first step In over
hauling Is a thorough cleaning. This
should Include not only the body, but
the upholstery and the running gear
underneath the vehicle. The engine
should he thoroughly cleaned, all
gummy deposits being removed with
kerosene. All oil compartments, crank
ense. geurset. differential, etc., must be
drained of their old oll, und after be
ing flushed out with kerosene should
be refilled with fresh lubricant.
