      Before the Mark II was finished, I was thinking that I need some rest and maybe stopping modeling completely.
      After a few months "without", I noticed that I'm missing something. But, what to do? A new 10-years project is out of question, I need something less complex.
      After a while, it was clear that I had to do something with Cadillac. But what? The answer came rather quickly: a 1930 to 1933 Cadillac V-16 engine and frame, as a rolling frame.
      I have some contacts with people restoring the second version: 1932/33 which differs framewise from the first version 1930/31.
      I will have to do new things, like wire wheels! I searched in this forum for a tutorial, but found nothing. However , I do remember that somebody did recently (1 to 2 years) wire wheels. Can somebody tell me where to search?

    Looks like a lot of thought and work went into that! -I have some small carburetors in my future that will probably be made in a similar fashion! Thank you for showing the way!

    Yes, a lot of calculation based on drawings and pictures. That's what I like, even if the end result is not 100% true!

    Relief looks good, I look forward to seeing what components will be attached.

    On the left side or the transmission, a large bracket will be attached. This bracket is the pivoting point for the clutch and brake pedals! Another casting 1:12 1932 Cadillac V-16 frame and engine part for which I have few details...

    Super picture! All the ones I have are taken from rather near, making difficult to estimate the position of the reliefs. Is that picture from eBay? If yes, I'll have to look at the ad!
    Anyway, thanks for the search.
    The case is identical for all transmissions, V-8, V-12 and V-16. However, the cover is different. This one is really for the V-16 because on the V-8 the gear lever is more towards the rear.

    The last details were added on the main body of the transmission. On the LH side: drain and refill plugs. On the RH side: 3 attaching points and the vertical surface for the locking yoke pin plate. On the V-12 and V-16, both front attaching points are used to attach the ratchet for the hand brake lever; on the V-8 cars, the two rear attaching points are used for the ratchet.
    Now, I "just" have to attach the case to the flywheel cover...

    Okay, good. The email address is in the top of the picture. www.2040-parts.com but it was the only photo of that trans in that listing. The site had other parts for sale.

    I saw the address on the picture. I entered it to get a long list of various brands and parts. Probably I did not get deep enough to see that transmission...

    This v12 is on EBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/17460750295...BoCKAEQAvD_BwE

    and this is a new link that did not appear in the previous search https://images.app.goo.gl/9VJKzrC7YnCbicD46

    The link I gave you previously did not show up in today's search. Crazy sometimes how these searches give such different results.

    Thanks Paul to search for me! From the V-16 for sale, I copied some pictures as the ones I have are from a different perspective. I saw on this for sale engine that the shaft between the generator and water pump is just missing.
    Of course, I searched myself with Google with mixed results. There are subtle differences between 1930 engines and 1932 ones. Anyway, thanks!

    The main case was silver soldered to the flywheel cover. This operation was critical as the transmission must be in a good alignment with the engine.
    Now, I'm two steps away to have the transmission's case ready: the provision for the clutch lever on the LH side and the one for the starter motor on the RH side must be added. As I neglected to measure in detail both elements, I will have to rely on the many pictures I have to do something decent.

    If the provision for the clutch lever went not too bad (I have much more time to design and "place" it on the transmission than to do the part), it's another story for the installation of the starter motor. Finally, I began with the motor, working towards the transmission. As I had the length and diameter of the motor, I have the impression that it will be easier to adapt the assembly to the transmission than doing the contrary.
    Just to show you why it's difficult, I'm adding two pictures from the original assembly. You will notice that all elements after the starter motor are at odd angles and not in line with the motor because there was a reduction gear. No picture about what I did because a starter motor is just a cylinder, nothing spectacular.

    The first picture should be turned 90 to be more logic...

    Roger, you always have such fun!

    That looks like a solid weeks worth of just looking and making plans! Maybe more?

    Good Luck!
