TON

"The author, who for years has been very closely associated with automobile and electrical affairs, has tried to present his material to meet the needs of the general reader and at the same time reach the difficulties of the repair man. For the latter classification the wiring diagrams have been carefully analyzed, and full instructions have been given for the various types. The discussion of the earlier as well as the latest models of each particular system and the variations of the same system on different cars should be helpful." From the preface.
