Mechanically timed ignition is easy to understand and wonderfully straightforward to diagnose and repair, which is good because it's one of the most likely things on an older car to die and leave you in the lurch. Rob Siegel--better known as the Hack Mechanic-- explains how mechanical ignition works and discusses in detail how to set timing and advance. There is also a full chapter on troubleshooting mechanical ignition problems. Illustrated with over 100 photos and diagrams and supported by clear, step-by-step instructions, the Mechanical Ignition Handbook features sections on:*mechanical ignition basics and components*common repairs and recommended tools*adjusting point gap*setting dwell angle*locating the timing mark*finding top dead center*setting static and dynamic ignition timing*using both a standard and an advance timing light*testing coil resistance*Retrofitting breakerless electronic ignition (for those who say "enough!")Applies to vintage cars from the 1950s up through the mid 1980s that have either points and breakers or mechanical ignition advance, including: Porsche 356, Mechanically-timed Porsche 911, BMW 1600, BMW 2002, Ferrari 365, MGB, Austin-Healey Sprite, Jaguar E-Type, Triumph Spitfire, Triumph TR3, Mercedes models including the Mercedes 190 SL, Volkswagen Beetle, early Volvo, Pontiac GTO, vintage Chevrolet Camaro and other American muscle cars.

Safety managers today are required to go beyond compliance with the latest fire codes to implement proactive fire safety management programs that improve profitability. By reducing property loss insurance premiums and fostering an efficient work environment to help realize quality gains, safety managers can add to the bottom line; however, they need a solid understanding of the duties and responsibilities for which they are accountable. The Fire Safety Management Handbook is every safety manager’s must-have guide for developing a successful fire safety management program. Emphasizing proactive fire safety activities that achieve optimal results, the text presents the key elements that comprise an effective fire safety management program, including a basic knowledge of: Types and functions of fire control equipment Identification and control of hazardous materials Homeland security during disasters and emergencies Fire chemistry, building construction, and efforts to reduce losses due to fire Commonly installed fire detection systems and their maintenance and inspection National Fire Codes (NFPA) and federal, state, and local legislation and enforcement Available resources, fire safety organizations, and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) To provide current and future safety professionals with a better understanding of emergency management within the fire safety discipline, each chapter of the Third Edition includes learning objectives at the beginning and questions at the end. Case studies have been added, codes and standards have been updated, and a new chapter on emergency response planning has been included. Plus, a school fire safety plan that can be used as a template is now part of the appendices.

How I Resurrected a Decade-Dead 1972 BMW 2002tii and Road-Tripped It a Thousand Miles Back Home, and How You Can, Too

The author buys a long-dead vintage BMW sight-unseen, travels a thousand miles to where it sits, gets it running, and drives it home. During the twelve-day trip, he finds that what began as a story of man-versus-machine turns into something else entirely--a story of the kindness of strangers, and how doors sometimes open exactly when you need them to. "Rob Siegel is a writer with the mind of a mechanic and a mechanic with the mind of a writer. He's also an old-school romantic of the best kind, and one of the few people who understands what car culture really means to the people invested in it-free of stereotype, cliche, or pat sentiments you've read a thousand times before. Like all of his writing, Ran When Parked focuses heavily on the why behind the hobby. It's a mix of casual, long-form blog entry; detailed how-to; and emotive confessional; most of all, he seems to believe the world would be a better place if everyone else followed on his crazy path and devoted their free time to resurrecting old iron. He's right." -Sam Smith Editor at Large, Road & Track

Recent research has led to a deeper understanding of the nature and consequences of interactions between materials on an atomic scale. The results have resonated throughout the field of tribology. For example, new applications require detailed understanding of the tribological process on macro- and microscales and new knowledge guides the rational design of material for these applications. A two volume set, the Modern Tribology Handbook reports on the current state-of-the-field as it reflects these developments, including all industrial applications. In the Modern Tribology Handbook you will get: A thorough review of the basic concepts of contact, friction, wear, and lubrication Comprehensive coverage of experimental studies The fascinating subject of molecular dynamics simulations An exploration of both conventional and new tribological materials Knowledge of the advantages and limitations of ceramics, diamond-like carbon and related films, and a wide range of coating composites A section devoted to industrial components and systems Conventional tribology has become well established in the past fifty years but few handbooks that exist are dated. The rapid evolution of micro- and nanotribology will cause it to take center stage for the next decade, but much of the new information has not made it into the hands that need to use it. Extensively illustrated and well-researched, the Modern Tribology Handbook gives you comprehensive information on conventional topics and, more importantly, emphasizes all industrial applications, including the fundamentals of the emerging field of micro-and nanotribology.
