The Motor Vehicle has been an essential reference work for both the student and practicing engineer ever since the first edition appeared in 1929. Today it is as indispensable to anyone with a serious interest in the subject as it was then. The current edition has been revised to include coverage of material detailing the latest knowledge and practice relating to engine control, fuels, carburetion, super and turbo-charging and much more. The established layout of the book is retained, with topics relating to the Engine, Transmission and Carriage Unit dealt with in turn. Each chapter is well supported with diagrams, sections, schematics and photographs, all of which contribute to a clear and concise exposition of the material under discussion.About the Author:
