Quiet Clutch Rons in Oil
The clutch of the new Maxwell operates in a
bath of oil. This makes it remarkably smooth
and velvety in engagement, and eliminates 80
per cent, of noise when the gears are shifted.
Designers of the highest-priced cars agree
that the clutch should run in oil.
The Maxwell clutch and transmission mech
