Done some homework and think this may date from late 1911 to early 1912. Any thoughts or opinions? Its an extra I have no use for and would like to unload it but really need to know what it is

The cylinder head in your picture is later than summer of 1912 Rob. That's the time period when the date was relocated from the center of the cylinder head to the rear of the head. I think your head is a typical one from perhaps 1913 - 1917 and is from a Canadian assembled engine.

The cylinder head below is from my 1912 Touring S/N 93622. The head has a casting date in December 1911. This was a typical head from mid 1910 through the summer of 1912.

Thanks royce. Didn't realize there were so many Canadian variations for that time period.

Does anyone know when Made in Canada started to appear on the heads?

I believe Canadian manufacture of blocks and heads began in 1918, so it would not have been prior to that.

Another difference I noticed between the 1910-12 heads without the Made in USA embossing and Rob's head, is that the Ford script is different. On yours, Royce, and all other 10-12 heads I've seen, the top horizontal line of the "F" does not extend to the vertical line of the "d" of the Ford embossing. On yours, Rob, it does, just like the Made in USA embossed heads from 1913-17. I agree with Royce it is probably a later Canadian trade head.
