Speed Control.
The Lindsley Car may be run sixteen miles per hour at any desired speed from two to sixteen miles per hour. The brakes are internal expanding and operated by a foot pedal which works on the brake drums one of which is on each rear wheel. The spark and throttle are kept under control by a small lever on the wheel.

The transmission is the planetary friction type, which we guarantee to do perfect work. The differential is placed in the center of the jack shaft and has steel beveled gears: these gears are brushed with bronze so as to give the best possible service. We use double chain drive from counter shaft to sprockets on the rear axles, thus avoiding the split axles, which cause so much trouble.
