While going over some of my old files, I found a link to a wonderful book. I don't know where I got the link (might even have been on the forum).
The book is: "Automobile Repairshop Short-cuts Over 1500 Time and Labor-saving Kinks ... - Motor World - Google Books"
It was published in 1918 and I think some of the ideas in it are brilliant. It's loaded with pictures and fun to read!!
Here's the link:
Absolutely wonderful. I especially liked the illustrations. Similar to Dykes.
Thanks for the link.
Wish I could find a way to print this out at a publisher so it was on both sides of the page. Very interesting book. Thank you for sharing.
If you click on the "gear" on the right, you can save it as a PDF on your computer.
Then, you can print it at home or save it to a thumb drive or a CD rom and take it your local Kinkos and have it printed there.
This book is available as a reprint:
One interesting thing I noticed was the use of gasoline to clean parts. They were even spraying it with a compressed air gun of sorts. There were a couple of examples I noticed. They didn't even suggest you do it outside. Talk about a hazard.......
