An outer sleeve rigidly secured furnishes the mounting for the brake anchorage. Among other details, it will be noticed that the hub-flange drive is employed in preference to the hub-cap drive. The squared end of the drive shaft is forced into the hub and positively secured. In this way, it becomes practically a unit with the outer hub-flange. A North East, combined motor-generator, 12-volt unit furnishes the power for starting and lighting. It operates in the regular way as an electric motor for starting or as a generator for charging the battery and lighting the lamps. The battery is a 12-volt Willard of 40 ampere-hours capacity. The starter pedal is placed in the center of the toe board; and, after switching on the ignition, it is only necessary to press this pedal to turn the crank-shaft with a torque of 35 footpounds. After the starter pedal is released, the unit automatically becomes a generator. A new Eisemann, G-4, high-tension magneto of the water-proof type furnishes the ignition current. In the spring suspension, a noteworthy detail of design is the method of mounting the rear spring on the axle., The bearing of the swivelled spring seat is designed to form a chamber surrounding the axle tube. This chamber is filled with grease when the car is assembled. Thus, even should the operator neglect the grease cup, there is small chance that the spring may bind. The springs are of the self-lubricating type, the leaves being formed with grease pockets at their tips.
