Actually only need the dimensions and gear sizes so I could make patterns and castings for my 1907 Deere and the four cylinder Maxwell seems incredibly similar, only in reverse. I need gear sizes and teeth number for the cams, timing and crank and thickness of the water jackets and sizing of the jugs and crank cases. A well know pattern maker is helping me and said if we could get dimensions we could build the missing engine. See the similarities. Is there a Maxwell archives that might have the original blueprints like Ford has ? Or is their anyone with a Maxwell Mercury Four Cylinder Motor apart that might be willing to allow measurements ?

I used to help make patterns and castings for a small engine builder here in Nebraska, and it was always amazing to see our ideas and blueprints become running engine in miniature. I don’t believe a full sized is much different only more machining, and stronger support in casting so there is no chance or warping the castings. And the jugs will be individual so less weigh in cast iron. The lower case is aluminum much easier to work with.

I have what you are after. The Maxwell mercury used the 30 horse engine with the individual jugs as opposed to the smaller 4 with cyl. Cast in pairs. It just so happens, I have one of these 30 horse engines apart right now. I am short of free time at the moment but will reach out later.

I have gone ahead and included in the pic the remains of what often happens to Maxwell cam gears... don’t copy the spoke design!
