It had been some time since I'd been down to Steve's shop so today presented the opportunity. As always, just wonderful stuff to look at and ask about, never enough time. The lovely blue duPont is the car finished for Pebble last fall. Also present were 3 Bentleys, 4 Pierce-Arrows, 3 Packards, an lovely original early Cadillac, and some mechanical work to look at - a Packard Twelve ready for reassembly and a Marmon Wasp T-head ready for some test-running. Hope you enjoy. Left-click to enlarge.

G'day Dave,

Always like to see the pic's you take at Automotive Restorations and the great cars concerned. However this time the pic of the Twelve block really caught my attention as I'd never seen a bare block before, most interesting!

Thanks for posting the fascinating pics Dave.

I notice the second Bentley is still wearing it`s Vintage Sports Car Club badge and UK registration.

Like Mal, I was particularly keen to see the Packard V12 block, the first I have seen dismantled. Interesting valve angle relative to cylinder axis. Nicely re-balanced crank too.

I also liked the Marmon engine. What a flywheel! Looks as though it belongs on a steam engine. Was it a cone clutch?

Hi Adam, glad you found the photos interesting. I don't recall about the clutch on the Marmon Wasp engine. Here's a sectional view of the Packard Twelve from an original assembly blueprint which will give you a better idea of the valve arrangement and combustion chamber.
