Frank, I didn't know how it worked! Very interesting, and my manual that has it in it is exactly 10 inches from me right now.

Yep, very interesting.

The only overhead cammed v-8 's in that time period that I know of was the Hispano-Suiza 8 and the Lincoln Liberty motor and both were aero engines.
Did you mean overhead valve rather than overhead cam?

That might be... the Cadillac and Peerless were L-heads (flat-heads).

What car in 1922 had v-8 engines. ( they might have been before 1922 not sure.) They also had a overhead cam, it was rated at 67-bhp 4.3 litre. Also all the cars had disc brakes.

Bob I'm ready for a answer.

The person that built the car was one of the ororiginal partners with someone who went on to become well known in the automotive feild. The car was a overhead cam engine. not a big car the best year theyy sold 4300 units.

you can look on the internet as I get my questions from a book. I think I have given a enough clues, that someone should get it. I like to make people use their hat holder for something besides holding hats.

I'll be darned! I found it!! Wills-St.Claire, 265 SOHC V-8, 67 hp.
HowStuffWorks "1922 Wills Sainte Claire A-68 Roadster"

I first searched "1922 V-8" and came up with the Peerless and Cadillac, nothing else. This time I added "OHC" to the search and there it was!! Darned good one...

Well you got me! Apparently Wills' V8 was actually inspired by the Liberty Aircraft Engine. Block and head were cast as one.
Pretty nifty!

As soon as 35terra confirms my answer (or tells me I'm wrong!) I'll come up with a question.... will try to come up with something non-AMC specific this time...

Sorry I took so long getting back but I had a Dr's app. this morning and I have to go 40 miles one way to see him.

Farna as for your answer, you got it. you didn't say and I didn't ask but Chile Harold Wills was one of Henry Ford's original partners, just think of what they could have come up with if they had stayed together.

Here's a good one: What car had an electric starter built into the flywheel, so the flywheel could function as a motor for starting and a generator when the engine is running? Make and year!!

Would I be correct assuming we're not talking about new hybrids? A lot of them are using this technology.

That would be correct! This might be where they got the idea...
It's called an "electric motor-generator".
If no one has a guess by tomorrow morning I'll give a big hint.
