With flash.
Data plate at the rear. “I still believe this was the engine on display in the lobby of the main entrance of the Buick office on Hamilton Avenue in 1920″.

A vintage photo of the Sloan engine.

This Liberty engine is on loan to the Kalamazoo Aviation History Museum. It is owned by the Sloan Museum in Flint.

This photo I believe is actually in the aluminum foundry #30.
Here the rockers are being placed on the heads.

Here the engines are on their wheeled dolly’s after testing. Notice the drip pans. You can super enlarge just about any photo on this blog for viewing small details. The way this is done is a little different depending on which browser is used.
