The rapid growth of the automobile industry has resulted in a ! marked increase in the number of automobile repair shops and, as the sale of cars augments yearly, the demand for mechanics skilled in the art of caring for, adjusting and repairing automobiles will continue to grow in proportion. Then again, many cars are purchased by people in moderate circumstances or others remote from repair shops who desire to make their own adjustments and minor repairs. Many excellent mechanics in other lines have felt that the automobile business offered opportunities, but were unable to avail themselves of them because of lack of knowledge of motor car construction.
The writer obtained much practical knowledge of automobile mechanism first hand as a repairman in the earlier days of the automobile industry and often felt the lack of definite, scientific instructions for doing various classes of work in a practical manner. When one considers that the modern automobile is a complex assembly of many different groups, it is not difficult to understand why an excellent machinist, for instance, may be unable to repair a starting and lighting system because of lack of electrical knowledge, pr why the electrician, to whom this work is not difficult, may be unable to refit bearings or time a motor valve system. The practical all-around automobile repairman must not only understand machine svork and metal-working tools of all kinds, but must also possess some of the knowledge of the electrician, plumber, wood-worker, ubber-worker, tinsmith and blacksmith..
It is the purpose of the writer to outline the essentials of automobile repairing in a way that will be understood hy all with rdinary mechanical ability. Much of the material will prove of qual value to the chauffeur, owner and general mechanic. The miter has been collecting notes and sketches for this treatise for per eleven years and has had an exceptional opportunity to sup
