MODERN STARTING, LIGHTING AND IGNITION SYSTEMS. By VICTOR

W. PAGÉ, M.E.
This practical volume has been written with special reference to the requirements of the
non-technical reader desiring easily, understood, explanatory matter, relating to all
types of automobile ignition, starting and lighting systems. It can be understood by
anyone, even without electrical knowledge, because elementary electrical principles are
consid ed before any attempt is made to discuss features of the various systems.
These basic principles are clearly stated and illustrated with simple diagrams. All the
leading systems of starting, lighting and ignition have been described and illustrated with
the co-operation of the experts employed by the manufacturers. Wiring diagrams are
shown in both technical and non-technical forms. All symbols are fully explained. It
is a comprehensive review of modern starting and ignition system practice, and includes
a complete exposition of storage battery construction, care and repair. All types of
starting motors, generators, magnetos, and all ignition or lighting system units are
fully explained. The systems of cars already in use as well as those that are to come.
in 1916 are considered. Every person in the automobile business needs this volume.

MANAGEMENT AND REPAIR. By VICTOR W. PAGÉ, M.E.
The only complete work published for the motorcyclist and cyclecarist. Describes
fully all leading types of machines, their design, construction, maintenance, operation
and repair. This treatise outlines fully the operation of two- and four-cycle power
plants and all ignition, carburetion and lubrication systems in detail. Describes all
representative types of free engine clutches, variable speed gears and power trans-
mission systems. Gives complete instructions for operating and repairing all types.
Considers fully electric self-starting and lighting systems, all types of spring frames
and springs forks and shows leading control methods. For those desiring technical
information a complete series of tables and many formulæ to assist in designing are
included. The work tells how to figure power needed to climb grades, overcome air
resistance and attain high speeds. It shows how to select gear ratios for various
weights and powers, how to figure braking efficiency required, gives sizes of belts and
chains to transmit power safely, and shows how to design sprockets, belt pulleys, etc.
This work also includes complete formulæ for figuring horse-power, shows how dyna-
mometer tests are made, defines relative efficiency of air- and water-cooled engines, plain
and anti-friction bearings and many other data of a practical, helpful, engineering
nature. Remember that you get this information in addition to the practical de-
scription and instructions which alone are worth several times the price of the book.

CHART. GASOLINE ENGINE TROUBLES MADE EASY—A CHART SHOW

ING SECTIONAL VIEW OF GASOLINE ENGINE. Compiled by VICTOR
W. PAGÉ, M.E.
It shows clearly all parts of a typical four-cylinder gasoline engine of the four-cycle
type. It outlines distinctly all parts liable to give trouble and also details the de-
rangements apt to interfere with smooth engine operation.
Valuable to students, motorists, mechanics, repairmen, garagemen, automobile sales-
men, chauffeurs, motorboat owners, motor-truck and tractor drivers, aviators, motor-
cyclists, and all others who have to do with gasoline power plants.
It simplifies location of all engine troubles, and while it will prove invaluable to the
novice, it can be used to advantage by the more expert. It should be on the walls of
every public and private garage, automobile repair shop, club house or school. It can
be carried in the automobile or pocket with ease, and will insure against loss of time
when engine trouble manifests itself.
This sectional view of ergine is a complete review of all motor troubles. It is prepared
