Some of the outstanding advantages of the "Ricardo Head" are: more power, higher economy at all loads; quicker acceleration; freedom from "ping"; lower exhaust temperature that eliminates exhaust valve trouble; reduced crank case dilutlion; clean spark plugs; less carbon; less heating at all loads.

LIGHT FOUR

Transmission
All transmission gears of the Light Four are completely housed In a heavy cast iron case and run in a bath of oil. The shafting and gears are machined from alloy steel forgings and are properly tempered to resist breakage and wear. An idler gear that dips deep into the oil in the bottom of case constantly oil sprays the smaller pinions and the gear shifting mechanism. The bearings are either Timken or Hyatt - Timken where end thrust is encountered and Hyatt on the straight pulls.

 

The heavy industrial type Waukesha engine with Patented "Ricardo Head" is the power plant of the Light Four. This engine was selected because it typifies the ideals behind the tractor as a whole - the desire and determination to make it absolutely the best in its class.
