BRAKELIGHTS: Wetmore’s, Ferndal Michigan

Wetmore’s Tire & Auto Repair in Ferndale, MI, has been in business since 1928 on Woodward Avenue. The English-style shop has an alcove on the roof where a misaligned and wobbly-wheeled 1964 Chrysler New Yorker sits. According to www.wetmorestireandautorepair.com, one of the first vehicles was a Hudson. Executives from the Hudson Motor Company claimed the wobbling Hudson was damaging to their image. In true Motor City fashion, Hudson made a generic grill to disguise the car.

Belt-In-Oil Timing Systems

Oil contamination of the belt drive has been a death sentence, due to the rubber and fiber construction of the belt.

Since the adoption of timing belts by auto manufacturers began in the early 1970s, it has been pretty well beaten into our heads that oil and timing belts do not play well together. Oil contamination of the belt drive has been a death sentence, due to the rubber and fiber construction of the traditional timing belt. Oil attacked the rubber as well as the raw edge of the belt with its exposed fibers, weakening the belt until it delaminated (losing its teeth), or the belt snapped.
