SYSTEM WITH SECTIONAL MOTOR, FOR STUDENTS' USE
people have told me that my equipment in this department is
the greatest and most varied they have ever seen. this
is because I feel that nothing can take the place of having
all of the important types of starting and lighting devices,
each one mounted on an engine that will urn so that every
student gets actual training and practice on all types of
electric starters, which is the only way that I know of to
enable him to "make good" in the automobile business
as a starting and lighting expert.
My course in this department is
complete in every respect. I teach you installation,
repairing and operation. Just a soon as you have
mastered the theory -- the WHY -- I put you to work on the
starters in our starter room. Here you have an
opportunity to put your instruction into practice. Some
schools attempt to teach this work from diagrams with perhaps
one or two starters for the instructor's use only. This equipment
is expensive and they don't have the facilities to give you
the actual practice on real engines.
I point this out to you so you will
fully appreciate how to judge the importance of this
equipment. I give you the practical training on the
machines themselves. Practically every new car today,
from the light runabout to the big touring car, is equipped
with some kind of a self-starter.
At the present time there are nearly
fifty different kinds and types of starting and lighting
equipment, and to be an expert, you must be familiar with them
all. You must have practical knowledge and experience,
and that's what you will get here. Our starter course,
like all of our other courses, is complete, up-to-the-minute
in equipment, and carefully taught.
Nine out of ten requests that come to
my school for men for positions in the automobile business,
contain a paragraph, something like this: "I want a
good man to work in my shop. He must be a good starting
and lighting man." You can thus see why it is
absolutely essential that you must thoroughly understand
starting and lighting troubles in order to be qualified to
hold a position in this department of the automobile business.
addition to this, where there is a choice of men involved, the man
whit a knowledge of starting and lighting troubles is invariably
given the preference. This is best shown by the fact that in
the past year or two I have had a great many old time repairmen, men
who picked up their knowledge of the trade by experience, come here
to my school to get this complete course of practical training in
starting and lighting equipment, because they found that the
automobile business today demands it in order for them to make good.
