has ever jnanufactured. This statement, is not based up'on theory, but is

to the most severe tests which we have been capable of giving them,, and have
proven to our entire satisfaction that the foregoing is an absolute fact.

SPECIFICATIONS OF THE 1913 CADILLAC
The Delco system has been' simplified by the elimination of controlling
switch and ampere hour meter. Motor generator operates both as
generator and motor on six-volt current. This has been accom
plished by using two windings i.nil two commutators on the arma
ture. One winding is for use when the motor generator is used as
a generator, and the other winding for use when the motor gener
ator is used as a motor.
Xine-cell battery ustxi instead of the twelve-cell battery.
There is a voltage regulator to regnlatt- the rate of charge to the storage
batten'- and the voltage to the light. With the. voltage rgulat..r
the charging rate of the battery depends entirely upon the condition
the battery is in. A fully discharged battery is charged at a high
rate, and the charging rate decreases as the battery reaches it .uli
charged condition. x
