Abstract: A portable tank apparatus has a yoke pivotal on a transverse member between a service towing position and a raised position, and a pair of hingedly connected brace members at the rear of the apparatus and operable by an actuator to retract the wheels or lower the wheels to the ground.
Abstract: A fuel-water separator for diesel engines has a coalescing media and baffle plates through which diesel fuel and water pass upwardly, separation thereof being effected by reducing emulsification of water with fuel, and by passing of heavy particulates to the bottom of the separator.

Abstract: A trim assembly for interior walls of buildings has a cornerpiece configured for retention in a corner between intersecting walls, a trim strip extending from each opposite side of the cornerpiece, a tang extending from each opposite side of the cornerpiece and extending into slots in respective trim strips, a block member at each opposite side of the cornerpiece, at least one post extending from at least one of the block members and into a slot in a decorative member, and a clip device disposed about the post to retain it in the slot to retain the decorative member relative to the block member.
Abstract: Improved glass fibers compositions, typically useful for fire resistant blankets or containers to provide high burn-through resistance at high temperatures of 2,400° F. and higher, and typically comprising silica, sodium oxide, potassium oxide, calcium oxide, magnesium oxide, ferrous+ferric oxide, and titanium oxide; the improved glass compositions may further include alumina, lithium oxide, and boron oxide.
Abstract: An engine cooling system liquid insertion and removal system has an adapter disposed in a vehicle radiator service opening via which old coolant is removed from the engine system by partial vacuum applied to an old coolant container via a conduit. New coolant is introduced via the adapter by atmospheric pressure from a portable container. Conduits interconnect the engine cooling system, the old and new coolant containers, and a source of partial vacuum applied to conduits.
Abstract: A toothpick and tablet dispenser has two housing halves force-fitted together and guide walls in at least one of the halves to guide toothpicks and tablets to different outlets to dispense a single toothpick or tablet at a time. A gate at each outlet provides manual access to the outlets and insure sanitary interior conditions.
Abstract: Improved glass compositions for glass fibers typically useful for fire resistant blankets or containers to provide high burn-through resistance at temperatures of 2,300° F. and typically comprising 10.23% to 81.81% silica, 2.0% to 26.00% alumina, 3.0% to 15.0% calcium oxide, 0% to 10.50% magnesium oxide, 1.0% to 18.0% ferrous+ferric oxide, and 0% to 4.0% titanium dioxide; the improved glass compositions may include 0% to 9% lithium oxide, 0% to 9% boron oxide, 0% to 6.0% manganese oxide, and 0% to 4.0% phosphorous oxide.
Abstract: A pet litter apparatus has an upper screen to retain litter and debris, a plurality of upper bars, a lower plurality of bars, mechanism for lowering the lower plurality of bars to define spaces for passage of particulate matter between the upper and lower bars, by rotating rods on sprockets to lower the second plurality of bars.
Abstract: A winch bar has an insertion portion adapted to fit in openings of a winch drum of non-circular cross-section, typically square or hexagonal, whereby the winch bar cannot rotate relative to the openings to present hazards of injury to persons or property which can result with prior art circular drum openings and circular cross-section bars.
