This list of things you should not do as a gas engine operator appeared in the January, 1917 issue of Gas Review magazine. Antique tractor and gas engine owners today can benefit from many of these hints.

1.      Don’t pull off the magneto and take it apart because the fuel tank is empty.

2.      Don’t try to run a tractor one more round with the oil low in the lubricator.

3.      Don’t let a knocking rod run “until noon.” It may loosen and then there will be something doing.

4.      Don’t use the starter frequently and drive at slow speed all day; batteries must be kept charged.
