When installed, the gap in an ordinary sized ring is around 1-04 inch and, if the gap is found upon in spection to be many times this amount, i\ indicates either poor fitting or very great wear with t ho probability that there is .considerable leakage at this point. IF. when the piston is removed, the rings are found gummed in their groove--, making the piston overnight in kerosene will remove most of this gunirn\ material, so that it can be .veertnined whether the rings are excessively loose i n t hoj r grooves on account of wear.

When it is decided which rimrs are to be discarded, they can be sprung out of their grooves by forcing their ends apart and worked off the end of the piston, no special care being required in handling them, as they are of no further use.

TROUBLE RESULTS IF IT IS EITHER TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW Proper carburetor action is depend ent in no slight degree upon the main tenance of the correct level of gasoline In the float chamber or carburetor bowl, which nhould bo at such a height that fuel will not overflow from the spraying nozzle or nozzles and yet will stand high enough so that a very slight suction at the jet will cause gasoline to l»e omitted from it. The general prac tice is to keep the level a very little, perhaps 1-16 Inch below the spraying orifice, the directions accompanying each model of carburetor usually stat ing the proper level, which is generally given as a certain fraction of an inch below the top edgo of tlie fuel bowl. This can readily be checked up with a scale, when the fuel bowl cover has been removed. If the fuel level is maintained very much too high, gaso line will escape continuously thru the spray nozzle and drip from the carbu retor noticeably, but if it is only 'slightly too high it will escape very slowly—mainly when the fuel Is warm —and may not bo discovered, but it Is likely to collect in the carburetor pas sages and cause an extremely rich mixture when the engine is started. Many cases of black t-tmoke, loading and irregular firing at starting, result from slightly overflowing carburetors. On the other hand if the gasoline level i* too low—considerably below the spraying orifice—more than the normal suction is required to cause fuel to flow out of the Jot. and some weaken ing of the mixture will ho the result. When suction Is slight, as at very low Idling or cranking npecds, too weak a mixture to fire reliably may be pro thiccd and very slow operation and easy cranking thus be interfered with. Morovcr, missing and weak power at very low speeds, with op*n throttle, aM in severe hill climbing, may be caused by the-suction being inadequate to lift gasoline thru an abnormal dis tance out of the spraying nozzle In suf ficient quantity to keep the mixture sufficiently rich. Carburetor float levels are supposed to be correctly ad justed at the factory, but on account of .the widely varying densities of gasoline, they sometimes have to bs readjusted. The higher the gravity of the gasotino used and the colder It Is. TWO LIVES ARE LOST IN BIG THEATER FIRE AUGUSTA, Ga..
