CLEARING A CHOKED OIL PUMP.

One of the most perplexing things that can occur on a long run is a complete blockage of the oil supply to the engine pump, and in most cases the driver is confronted with the prospect of getting to the nearest garage somehow, in order to have the base removed to clear the obstruction.

There is, however, an alternative, which we recently put to good effect and which may interest some of our readers. The oil pump was absolutely blocked and suspecting the presence of some matter in the oil the car was stopped on an up-grade, when the engine was switched off and then the car was allowed to run down backwards, with the first gear engaged. This, of course, had the effect of driving the engine backwards and the oil pump, by going the reverse way round, pumped the obstruction out of the inlet side and thereupon it resumed duty when the engine was restarted. Afterwards the journey of 50 miles was completed, after which the base was removed and the offending obstruction— a small piece of waste—was taken out.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS.

On and after 31st August, Messrs. R. S. Inglis, of 29, Upper Marylebone Street, W.1., will carry on their business from larger premises situated at 26, Upper Marylebone Street, from which address they will conduct operations on a more extensive scale. Besides developing the Spare Parts and Service Business, Messrs. R. S. Inglis will be extending the Motor Cycle Sales Department.
