Vertically divided crankcases were made at the behest of the War Department during World War One. The Scotts issued to the Motor Machine Gun Service did not fare too well in the hands of the troops and terrible conditions of the static trench warfare. They were sent out to the field workshops as spare parts, in order to simplify and speed up engine repairs and overhauls. This information came from the late Jack Stuart-White.
