STORING CAR FOR WINTER.

The New York Times
December 31, 1922


Before laying up a car for the Winter, all the bright work should be coated with a thin film of grease to prevent tarnishing. Grease cups should be filled with a high-grade non-acid grease and turned down until the lubricant covers the part requiring lubrication. The grease cups should be removed and filled once more.

The water should be drained from the radiator and water jackets, oil drained from the crankcase and the crankcase refilled with a high grade lubricant. Such assemblies as the universal joint, transmission, clutch and differential should be cared for as the instruction book designates.

The storage batteries should be removed and both the terminals of the battery and wire terminals coated with grease to prevent corrosion. The gasoline tank should be drained, the car jacked up to remove the weight from the tires. The tires should not be deflated. The car should be covered if possible and stored in a warm, dry place.
