best results are, however, missed unless
some ''fine point' attention is given to it.
For the first 500 miles running of a new
engine the oil level should be up towards
the top petcock, for a new engine should
be liberally soused with oil. But after 500
miles the level should gradually be
lowered until at 1,000 miles it stands mid-
way between the upper and the lower pet-
cock. The supply should then be further
gine is starved. If 'however, oil will
flow at all from the bottom petcock—if,
lower petcock — the Ford is well served
once it is run in. To carry the level much
higher means waste of oil and fouling of
the combustion chamber. Experiment will
show that if the level is started high, it
will rapidly fall (through wastage) until
down towards the bottom cock. After that
it falls very slowly, although the running
of the engine is every bit as good as when
the level stood high.
