The crank case is made of aluminum in two parts and encloses all the gears and the two cam shafts. Cooling.--Cooling of the motor is effected by the use of a newly designed radiator of the honeycomb type which is claimed to be suspended in such a manner that all shocks and vibrations to it are eliminated.

After the water is circulated around the cylinders it is emitted at the top and carried back to the tank. Lubrication.--The lubrication is fitted to the dashboard and is mechanically operated by the two to one shaft and supplies a definite quantity of oil to all of the cylinders, crank bearings and wrist pins at each revolution. Ignition.--The circuit making and breaking devices are operated from a cam shaft which is supported in bearings cast integral Plan View of Chassis. with the upper part of the crank case.
