Here Are Some of the Proof s-The Reasons Why the Hart-Parr "Little Devil" Oil Tractor Is So Positively Reliable and Durable In a previous announcement we told you, in a general way, what the "Little Devil" is and what it does. In this advertisement, we give you positive proof that the "Little Devil" is more reliable, more durable, and far superior to any other tractor on the marm. Frame This is the arch plate girder type. Hot riveted throughout, giving the stiff est, strongest and lightest form of frame construction known. Gears Only seven gears and pinions used in getting two speeds for ward and two speeds reverse. No differential gears with their multiplicity of parts to cause trouble; no governor or cam gears. Just a total of seven gears. All are spur gears not a bevel gear in the outfit and all are made of toughest steel-all well protected and well lu bricated All except two encased and running in oil. That's why there's no chance for gear breakage and mighty little chance for gear wear in the "Little Devil." Heavy Duty Ball Bearings Throughout except engine and rear axle bearings. You know how ball bearings work. They do away with friction need no adjustment. They wear longerwork smoother will stand more abuse and run longer, without oil, than any other bearings known. They are expensive but they are the bestthe most re liable most durable. That's why we use them in the "Little Devil.' ' . ' 1' The Motor Has no cams, cam gears or push rods. No valves, valve levers, springs or flippers of any kind no valve timing. Just two, smooth, substan tial cylinders, with some holes in them of proper sizes and in the proper places-not one thing about them to adjust or to get out of adjustment. Nothing but the two pistons and their connections that even move consequently nothing else to wear. You know what causes the trouble in motors the cams pound the puBherts the Jolnta Ret loose the springs get weak the valves hammer the valve seats and pretty soon evemng starts to near-gets loose clatters and bongs. The valves get out of time your engine loses power you har. to .stop to adjust It or something breaks and you are laid up for repairs. The "I.lttle Devil" motor has none of the claptraps about It Just om hole! bord in the cylinders. It can't get out of adjustment. There In nothing to get loose there is nothing to break. The hole. tsv richt where thev are nut you go right along, day after day. with nothing to bother you and you get Just aa much powtr ?rom the "UttTe DevU" a! the end of the day. as when Vou started. The motor la covered with a neat, substantial hood, just Ilk. an auto. All other vital, moving parts are thoroughly well protected from dust, dirt and grit. Two Complete Systems of Ignition One standard magneto, the other dry cells. If one system gets out of order, you can go right ahead on the other, without a moment's delay. Simplest Form of Carburetor Known has positive feed injection, without fuel or water pump. No air valves or springs, nothing to adjust, nothing to get out of order. Lubrication Positive, automatic, force feed lubricator. Just pour in the oil and the lubricator does the rest. Automatic Liquid Cooling System The cooling liquid is furnished with the tractor and lasts for years. It can't freeze or lime up. It cools the motor perfectly in hottest -or coldest weather and requires absolutely no attention. JOIN FORCES WITH THE ''LITTLE DEVIL" If you're a farmer, you want a "Mttle Devil" on your farm. You'll need It for getting your spring plowing done and your rrons started on time.
