Wendell Mason, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, had colored slides of the engine parts, rear axle makeup, pumps and boiler of his latest steam car. He explained each part shown on the screen. The engine is a three cylinder compound, and the crankshaft is in the rear axle housing with gears on the ends of the crankshaft similar to the Sentinel truck.

The accompanying pictures are so you can see it.
