That's a new one on me Ogre..I've never heard of that 'test'.

....you can replace your wiper
arms with new, pressure-adjustable arms and live, fresh wiper blades that
will mean a safe, clean wipe in any kind of weather. Ask your service man
to test your wiper arms next time you stop for gas.


I guess that pre-dates me as I have never known of any wiper arms that had adjustments on the tension springs...then too, I never worked as a gas station attendant either...

A patent application for the same or similar device..early 60s I think:

I never seen OEM adjustable arms from any car maker. Only from ANCO to be a "universal" arm to fit many cars but w/ different wiper blade length.
ANCO now in just FM brand but back in 50's - 70's a believe sold "Door to Door" for shops like Snap-on etc. still does.

I vaguely remember these displays at full service stations, but I know my dad didn't have one in his auto repair shop..

I don't know about that either, but there was some kind of IRS lawsuit over that whole wiperblade service thing...

I'll read the entire this later but seems to cover a lot of ANCO-"Dealer" contract etc.
I'm looking for original case and others that may have more info.

I have worked on three oil drilling 'walking' rigs.

I have seen video of maryjane's dredge design as it moved along. I think it was in one of those monster machine segments.

Best I can describe it is to envision a person with no legs, using their arms and hands to lift their body up, swing their body forward then repositioning their arms and hands to repeat. The lifting arms and feet on both sides of the dredge operate in sync, lifting at the same time.

The sensor on the end of the line for the gauge looks very similar to an o-2 sensor except that it measures pressures.

You simply replace most O2 sensors and run the engine.

This is a version of the Emergency/Maintenance Key for some types of Elevator Doors.
If you find one give it to building manager or security manager. Don't give to most others that will lose it again or worse.
