Bob, your post brings a question to mind. The spindles you show are not real early, as they have the flat spot on the inner end which allows the bearing to be driven off. The straight spindle arms are earlier than the bent ones which go with the wishbone under the axle.
The question, the answer to which I don't know, is when were the flats on the spindle introduced? Before the bent arms? At the same time?

They could be 1918 or later or the could be 1st change on the bearings, these were original and the arms were on these so they could be used on early cars with the brass oiler because of the straight arms, might not be show but will work, they could have been changed at some point but I also see a lot of spindles with bent arms with no flats which would be for the late non demountable cars, Bob

Allan from what I've read, the spindles with the flats may very well have begun with the straight arms,up to around '18 but only for a short time. I'm of the impression the bent arms showed up in '19.

Thanks Tim. The introduction of the bent spindle arms was driven by the adoption of the under axle wishbone, if I have that right. I can understand the flats on the spindles being introduced before that to enable the ball bearing cone on earlier spindles to be driven off. I was curious to know just when this revision was made.
