BTW, For a while I thought Dave's question was about the engine on the 1903 Wright Flyer.

No it's not a "axle driven PTO thingy. Nor is it a "overdrive unit." This is a add on accessory. It does have gears.

Actually - it was marginal at best. The owner (from Kentucky) of one the very few surviving cars of this production run was recently on his way to "a place way up north" - his dream was to drive it north of the Arctic Circle, so he was trailering it behind his moho to get up the Dempster Highway. A breakdown with the Moho left him participating (with this car!) in a weekend evening cruise in Prince George, BC.

Due to the massively unreliable nature of the original powerplant, he had installed a small Honda engine for this particular venture (does that make it a real old timey hotrod?), and my info comes from that source.

If no-one gets the answer by Tuesday eve, I'll post the answer

boothboy Ok. Last guess. either a 1901 Duryea Phaeton Three Wheeler, 1901 Duryea Phaeton Four Wheeler, or a 1901 Duryea Trap Four Wheeler.All three of these autos used Duryea's three cylinder engine. This engine throttled by sliding a throttle plate back and forth across the intake valves. The plate restricted the amount of travel the intake could open. This engine might be Duryea's Peoria type engine.
