English authorities on automo
)ile and mechanics have not only
set the stamp of approval on the
1914 Cadillac's two-speed direct
drive real axle but have taken pains
to analyze in lengthy articles its
manifold advantages, the efficiency
and comfort it secures and the
economies it affords. Mere is a
significant paragraph from The
Motor, an authoritotive London
"We have always held the Cadil
lac in the highest esteem, and ad
mired it as a criterional example of
high-grade American construction
It is obvious that no single gear
ratio can possibly be right for all
speeds and conditions, and even a
top-speed direct-drive is obviovsly
of extra advantage if it is duplicat
ed. For instance, if the engine
were turning at 1,000 revs, a min
ute, a certain speed on the low
drive would be obtained. Move the
electric switch and bring the top
direct-drive into operation, and an
. increase of 42 per cent, in speed is
at once obtained. Inversely, one
'can maintain the same speed of the
gear and reduce the engine speed
and equivalent percentage, and also
effect a saying of a considerable
portion of the said percentage in
petrol consumption. Then, again,
the friction of the various moving
parts decreases proportionately
with the speed, thus also bringing
into effect another saving."
