other rings successively, as it comes into sight. 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

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. The treatment of

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

day destroyed the Old Grand opera
house here. The couple had lived in
the building for 20 years.
tho more the float rises in it and the
lower the level is maintained. Old
carburetors, designed for lighter fuels,
generally run too low fuel levels on
this account and can sometimes be
greaAly improved by float mechanism,
readjustment. Wear of *the float
mechanism. Including that of the float
needle-valve, tends In general to
cause a high level.
