Description Fig. 63 Chain final-drive for an early car

Final-drive and reduction ratio by chain drive. This was an early system used on some cars. It avoided the need to machine a crown wheel and pinion to habndle high torque (difficult in the early days) and it also allowed the differential gear to be mounted on the chassis.

Chains may also break, potentially with fatal results at speed. See Babs
