their components, valuable money-saving hints on the care and operation of motor-
cars propelled by internal combustion engines. Among some of the subjects treated
might be mentioned: Torpedo and other symmetrical body forms designed to reduce
air resistance; sleeve valve, rotary valve and other types of silent motors; increasing
tendency to favor worm-gear power-transmission; universal application of magneto
ignition; development of automobile electric-lighting systems; block motors; under-
slung chassis; application of practical self-starters; long stroke and offset cylinder
motors; latest automatic lubrication systems; silent chains for valve operation and
