tempt 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. Every person in the automobile business needs this volume. Among
