Reminder from: Crosley Yahoo! Group Title: 1947: Paul Klotsch, Crosley chief engineer, addresses SAE. Date: Sunday January 1, 2012 Time: All Day Repeats: This event repeats every year. Location: Detroit, Michigan. Notes: New Low-Cost Auto Engines Described
DETROIT, Jan. 1-(AP)-An automobile engine of steel stamping construction and another employing sleeve valves were described to the Society of Automotive Engineers today as offering a possible answer to increasing costs of manufacture and operations.
The SAE, holding its annual meeting here, heard Paul Klotsch, of Cincinnati, tell of the design and construction of a four-cylinder engine fabricated from steel stampings, steel tubing and screw machine parts.
The engine, used in the Crosley automobile and weighing 120 pounds, was described as producing better revolutions per minute.
The cylinder block contains about 125 pieces with copper in sheet, wire or paste form applied in every joint. The assembly is copper-brazed in a 60 foot furnace at 2060 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ralph L. Skinner, of Detroit, producer of the sleeve valve engine, said it offered possibilities of reducing
car weight as much as 800 pounds. He said the slide valve engine operates without detonation on
lower octane fuels, gives better performance and economy and eliminates present troublesome "hot spots."
Other benefits, he declared, include compactness. Abbreviated crankshafts and greater power from less fuel.
