PLENTY OF WORK IN THIS DEPARTMENT IS WHAT GIVES YOU CONFIDENCE

     
Any of my former students will tell you that the greatest feature of my method of training motor mechanics, is lots of work under the direct supervision of numerous master mechanic instructors on real automobiles, motor trucks and farm tractors, of all the leading types, styles and sized in common use today.
     The automobiles and motors of this varied equipment range in size from the famous 12-cylinder or "Twin Six," and the 8-cylinders found in the pleasure cars, down to the regulation four's for both pleasure and heavy duty cars and trucks.
     The pictures shown on these pages herewith give you a fair idea of the amount of equipment used for this purpose in my big motor practice room, the largest and most complete to be found in any automobile school. 
     As soon as you have completed the work in the demonstration department of the school, you are put to work with your tool kit on these practice motors, under the care of an expert instructor, where you learn by actual work, how to make adjustments, repairs, rebuild, overhaul and everything connected with the construction and operation of motors.
     For this purpose, every motor that you see in this picture is a "live motor."  In other words, it will run.  One of the features of this work, is to have parts removed or put out of adjustment which it is your duty to locate and "tune up" until the motor will run properly.
Many of the men who are doing this work shown in the pictures, never saw under the hood of a motor car until they came to my school.  You would have a hard time telling them when they complete there work in this department that there is any comparison between my method of teaching and the obsolete "apprentice" method.
     It may impress you as a difficult problem to be able to lift the hood on any kind of a car that comes along, and be able to locate trouble quickly and surely.  There is only one way to learn how to do this with certainty, and that is by actual practice and lots of it on all kinds of cars and motors.
     Students at my school are not asked to leave this department until they feel that they are thoroughly qualified and competent to meet the requirements of their work.  In fact, you are urged to stay just as long as you possibly can.
     To give you a fair idea of the extent of the practice you will have and opportunity you will have to obtain it in this department at the Rahe School, you will find here the principal makes of cars containing the famous "Twin Six" or 12-cylinder engine, the famous 8-cylinder motors, many of the more common six cylinder motors including the Hudson "Super-Six," as well as all of the leading four cylinder types, such as Oldsmobile, Chalmers, Cadillac, Oakland, Overland, Reo, Velie, Studebaker, Dodge and may others.  We also have a "Ford Special" department for men who wish to specialize on Ford cars.
