About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from Faults and How to Find Them: Motor Car Failures and Their Remedies Fully Explained, With a List of One Hundred and Eighty Faults and Their Symptoms and Remedies HE present little work has been prepared principally with a view to assisting the novice to locate those faults usually met with in automobiles. Some years ago it occurred to the writer that it ought to be possible to devise a systematic method of examina tion which should find any given fault with a fair degree of certainty, and he then worked out such a system for use with a telephone receiver for trembler coil ignition. It was, however, found that this set of tables was far too complicated, and he decided then to prepare a set of tables which, as far as possible, should indicate a method of examination such as would be adopted by the. Expert. Few people will pro bably credit the difficulty of doing this. The expert is guided almost unconsciously by the previous behaviour of his car, and very likely hardly knows why he looks first at a certain point. In giving instructions to be followed by the novice, two contending factors had to be balanced. In the first place, the method given must not be so elaborate as to be hopelessly prolix; and, on the other hand, it would be to court certain failure if the novice were credited with the trained ears and eyes of the expert for the recognition of symptoms. Acting on these lines, an attempt was made to write the tables right off, and resulted in a bad headache and a hopeless failure. The reason was that one was constantly forgetting at what stage of the examination one had arrived, and, of course, after one had hunted back through a page or so of type, one's thoughts were all to be collected again, so that after a few hours' trying the attempt was abandoned. The next method was to make out the tables as genealogical trees, which was more successful, as a glance showed the stage of the examination. After this, the tables °(thus prepared under the ruling idea of making the examination conform as closely as possible to the behaviour of the expert under similar circumstances) had to be tested for the various faults. As the writer had early come to the conclusion that it would be futile to h0pe to catch faults which had not been foreseen, he had now to prepare a list of every fault he could think of. This list was typed out and posted in a garage, and a prize offered to the men for any further faults. These were added to the list.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from Faults and How to Find Them: Motor Car Failures and Their Remedies Fully Explained, With a List of One Hundred and Eighty Faults and Their Symptoms and Remedies HE present little work has been prepared principally with a view to assisting the novice to locate those faults usually met with in automobiles. Some years ago it occurred to the writer that it ought to be possible to devise a systematic method of examina tion which should find any given fault with a fair degree of certainty, and he then worked out such a system for use with a telephone receiver for trembler coil ignition. It was, however, found that this set of tables was far too complicated, and he decided then to prepare a set of tables which, as far as possible, should indicate a method of examination such as would be adopted by the. Expert. Few people will pro bably credit the difficulty of doing this. The expert is guided almost unconsciously by the previous behaviour of his car, and very likely hardly knows why he looks first at a certain point. In giving instructions to be followed by the novice, two contending factors had to be balanced. In the first place, the method given must not be so elaborate as to be hopelessly prolix; and, on the other hand, it would be to court certain failure if the novice were credited with the trained ears and eyes of the expert for the recognition of symptoms. Acting on these lines, an attempt was made to write the tables right off, and resulted in a bad headache and a hopeless failure. The reason was that one was constantly forgetting at what stage of the examination one had arrived, and, of course, after one had hunted back through a page or so of type, one's thoughts were all to be collected again, so that after a few hours' trying the attempt was abandoned. The next method was to make out the tables as genealogical trees, which was more successful, as a glance showed the stage of the examination. After this, the tables °(thus prepared under the ruling idea of making the examination conform as closely as possible to the behaviour of the expert under similar circumstances) had to be tested for the various faults. As the writer had early come to the conclusion that it would be futile to h0pe to catch faults which had not been foreseen, he had now to prepare a list of every fault he could think of.
