PROPER care of truck and bus equipment-always important, but now even more so because of wartime overloading - even applies to such seldom considered parts as the chassis leaf springs.
So that fleet operators will know what to do to prevent trouble from happening to these parts, Mr. Austen lists here the various places on the spring where breakage is most likely to occur and the reasons for each type of breakage.
These types of breakage depend on where the spring fails, and are listed, by the author, as follows:
At the center bolt hole.
Just away from the axle and outside of the U-bolt anchorage.
Midway between the axle and the eye.
At the base of the eye.
Just throughout the spring generally.
