Excerpt from Electric Railway Journal, Vol. 75: September, 1931 This company has adopted the tire mileage contract plan, as have many other bus operators. We feel that this is the most satisfactory way of equipping buses with tires. Damage to tires from accidents, misalign ment, etc., is paid for by the operator. Punctures, glass cuts, etc., are accepted by the tire company as road hazards. When an engine becomes noisy and the consumption of fuel and oil increases noticeably, it is completely dis mantled. The crankcase and other parts are thoroughly cleaned in a solution tank, and, if necessary, new main bearings are installed and line-reamed, the cylinder block and pistons are renewed and the valves refaced. The en gine is then run in for several hours, using ordinary lighting gas as fuel, before it is ready for service.
