In this department the motors, 82 at a time, are limbered up, being driven by an
electric motor for a minimum of 9 hours. They are then placed on a dynamometer
rack where they, in turn, drive a motor carrying an electrical resistance. Here
the horsepower, compression of each cylinder and general perfection of the motor
are determined. The valves, oil pump, carburetor, fan belt, spark plugs, distributer,
etc, are adjusted. Then, the motor is again torn down when a final
inspection and oil pressure bearing tests are made. After re-assembling, the
unit is ready for the frame assembly line.
