Adler

I am trying to find some information about an Adler which I am currently working on.  I am trying to find out what the drive in the picture is for.  It is driven from the camshaft and the lower end drives the oil pump.  I am also trying to find out if these engines are fitted with an oil pressure guage or some other type of oil indicator.  I've been unable to find any pictures of this 13/30 model and hope that your readers may be able to help me out.

fold out map inside promotional booklet with mercedes Daimler

I found this booklet when unpacking some to the boxes I hurriedly packed from a estate I cleaned out here in Kewanee Illinois. It may or may not be of interest to your group, the Mercedes -Automobile Daimler-Lastwagen at least advertised on the front cover if nothing else. The estate sale was not well attended and I knew the organizer slightly and asked what he was going to do with everything. He said their instructions were to rent a dumpster and throw it all away if it did not sell the owners wanted the house cleared out as the owner was the daughter who lived in singaphor with her husband she had Alzheimers advanced and when they came back to her parents house she became too agitated searching for them the entire time. They were a family that traveled the world most of their lives, she taught paino and was very active in the symphony world. Her sister in the art world  The father was originally from Norway, I felt I came to know them through cleaning out the house acutally wished I had known them. I am sure the map I have was picked up during travels the father seemed to love cars very much. He had a very nice vintage Volvo I imagine I may run onto more items there are some circular patches that look like car clubs from various places around the world I imagine he collected also. I did not  take a photo of the map unfolded if you would like I can do so and send it but it is so large and I would hate to tear it, so far I see no damage to it.  If I can provide any further info please let me know, I do so appreciate your interest in this piece I have pretty much run up against a blank  wall in my research of it which is sort of unusual, I can usually find almost anything on the internet. Thank you. Sharon Blakey

1st photo is the front of the cover

2nd photo is a close up of the top of the front of the cover

3rd photo is a close up ot the bottom of the front of the cover

4th photo of the back of the cover

5th photo is pic of one of the front pages there are two and the work appears to have been done by hand to put this together

6th photo gives you a idea of the size of the map even still folded it is folded four times each way so ends up quite large.
