How to buy a used Car at 90% savings off the book value

Written by Steve Li

To buy a used car is a great idea for saving money. Everyone knows that a new car lost 65% of its value inrepparttar first 5 years. Butrepparttar 102766 case would be more extreme for a 1 to 2 years old car, it will lost its value 30-40%. If you don’t mind to drive a used car (I mean a 2 to 5 years old car, it looks pretty new) rather than a new car, you may save much money to pay many other bills. If you want to keeprepparttar 102767 car not too old, you may resell it after driving for 2 to 3 years and buy another newer one. The value ofrepparttar 102768 car will only drop 15% or less for a 5 years old car. Therefore, your driving cost for 2-3 years would only be 10-15% ofrepparttar 102769 car’s original value. The price quote above was onlyrepparttar 102770 price you buy from an ordinary car dealer. However, you can buy it much cheaper through some special channel. Have you ever heard that aroundrepparttar 102771 country, hundreds of thousands of vehicles get repossessed by various institutions ranging from banks to US Customs, and everyone of those cars is going to be sold at an auction, online or traditional. Usually, before, only car dealers with a special license could benefit from these incredible savings, however, with a membership at some special organization, you can joinrepparttar 102772 ranks ofrepparttar 102773 lucky ones and find bargains that you could only dream of. Almost nothing will be out of your range as a member of this site - you will be able to get a car you always wanted but could not afford to spend so much money on.

Since Murphy or whoever it was, took credit forrepparttar round wheel, rolling technology has changed somewhat.

Today, friction whether static or dynamic, is reliant on bearings to reduce motor or engine load. What is sometimes overlooked isrepparttar 102765 inherent features and design of a bearings to reduce temperature where it is not necessary. The basic requirement is to reduce contacting surface areas. More extreme requirements are to reduce vibration, reduce allotted space required to house such a bearing, and extend their life.

Needle roller bearings are used whererepparttar 102766 load is spread length ways, and a typical or common application would berepparttar 102767 “big end” bearings of motorcycles. Plain bearings are still used inrepparttar 102768 big ends, of cars and most other crankshaft scenarios. The principle behind a plain bearing is thatrepparttar 102769 thinner a material is,repparttar 102770 harder it is to compress or displace it. Plain bearings, often called bushings, can be “steel backed” with a relatively thin coating of white metal applied torepparttar 102771 bearing contact surface. This would berepparttar 102772 common type inrepparttar 102773 automotive big end applications, and should a piece of offensive hard material contaminaterepparttar 102774 oil, it can be safely embedded withinrepparttar 102775 white metal. Should it be small enough then it is not an issue.

More plain bearings can be of a bronze base with impurities cast or sintered into them. The purpose is to absorb oil or lubricant before application, and become “self-lubricating, for a limited time anyway.

Many years beforerepparttar 102776 industrial revolution, bearings were made from anything available that was considered appropriate. Timber, sometimes from apple trees but not in any way exclusive to them, have been used in windmills and water mills.

Indeed, stone bushings were not unusual. You’ve heard ofrepparttar 102777 more expensive watches been said to contain “X number of Jewels”? The purpose of such jewels was to reduce friction and associated loads. This would be a loose example of metal to stone contact.

Thrust bearings are designed to work through a different axis, and may be ball-type, cylindrical roller type or a combination of both. Taper roller bearings are an example.

High temperature bearings have in-built allowance for expansion, or to put it another way; they have more clearance. High-speed bearings often have “cages” made from non-metallic materials. Typically, this material is tufnol or plastic.
