Actually, let me change that to a 1907 Reo

The markings on the axle says 1907 reo but the hub and hub caps are from something else. Hub may be 1909 reo but not so the cap

Wow! Thanks Dale and Ed! I guess that I saved this from the scrap guy! Thanks so much. One person PM me with interest.

My dad's 1910 IHC Model F roadster uses that hubcap. Same shape/profile and the distinctive arrow and "OFF". They are flush with the hub.

They are "off-the-shelf" and came in more than one size and were used on a number of different makes.

(Sorry about the low resolution photos - I don't have any close-ups of the hubs so I cropped large photos.)

THLLG&C,

The face of the cap is plan, but this photo is not clear.

A member personal mailed me. I responded, but never heard back from him. (Maybe my message went to spam. If anyone is interested, let me know.

I looked at my original unrestored 1907 Reo 2 cylinder and it does not match your axle. While it is close the main differences are the hub caps and hubs. Reo did not have a grease fitting in the hub, and the caps are totally different. The axle it self is very similar but these axles were used in many different cars of the era.

just sayin'

As Eric said the brass cap is likely aftermarket.

If the Reo hubs didn't have grease fittings, anyone have a idea of what we have here?

I took it apart and will post more photos momentarily.

BCG, Eric, Ed,Dale and Jerry,
Thanks for your input. I hope that this finds a home with someone who could use it.

Matthew

"Aftermarket" is a misnomer.

Quite a few makes of cars came with those hubcaps from the factory so they would be considered OEM in today's terms.

It's no different than other components that automobile manufacturers purchased from outside suppliers.

Post that axle on the HCCA forum - you might be able to get an ID there.

Don't worry about the HCCA forum. 10 days later and no answer!!! The MTFCA (down under) has got the answer.
The STAR is the trade mark of the TIMKIN bearing and axle company. The 3.07 is the Month and Year of manufacture. Scratch around a little more and you should find the axle number. There could be another number in the centre of the axle on top.
I hope this helps. I would also like to purchase the oiler from the top of the king pin.....Hint Hint..Photos to come
Regards ...Neil.
