Photo #1 1909-mid-1911
Photo #2 1913
Photo #3 similar to 1912, but others have BLOCK rather than Script Stewart
Photo #4 Post 1919 for 30x3-1/2" tires.

Keith, I can't comment on the years of application attributed to the gears, not knowing much about the early ones. However, your note that the last one is for 30x3.5" tyres is interesting. All the ones I have are like that. The other two are also 60 tooth x 8 pitch gears. Does that mean US cars with 30x3" front wheels had a different size fibre gear on the swivel?

Allan-
The 11077 was still a 60T 8P gear, but the center is a little different from the 1915-1919 gear (8685) that fit onto the hub. The various gears had different mounting methods. Sometimes three screws, sometimes four...

There was another road gear for the balloon 4.40x21" tires 30333 that was a 58 T and 8P gear.

The "Ford Special" (ca. 1915) gearing was completely different.

The #22 gears were brass plated and always secured by four screws to the wheel.

If I'm not mistaken the road gear in 1913 is still #22. It is mounted with 4 wood screws and spacers. There is no script. Stewart is in block letters. I have a 1322 gear too, and Stewart is still in block letters.
