Nice manual.  This manual is for the first Auto with a 346.3 cubic inch 90 degree flathead V8 with detachable cylinder heads that was released on January 15th of 1915.  Completely different than the Cadillac V8 released in October of 1914 that had a 90 degree solid cylinder heads configuration and was much smaller.  It is a good read on one of the important V8's in automotive history.

The Leland Cadillac V8 was a 314 cu. in. 90 degree engine which ran from the 1915 model year through 1927. Constant improvements were made, as the huge sales volume allowed engineering advances to be integrated and amortized. The last year saw two quite different engines, with two iterations of the first of the two. 3 1/8 bore, 5 1/8 stroke for the duration.

 

It was the Leland Lincoln which was the 60 degree V8.      -   Carl
