Bob, my Canadian 15 had the smaller pressed steel pulley. The cast type shown are common on our later Canadian cars with the blunt snout pan and generators. Is it larger than the early type?
We do not have the larger pulleys in pressed steel like US cars.

Hope this helps.

Earliest drawing for this pulley that I ever found at HFM showed it to be ordinary steel much like the most common ones we normally find on T's before they had the larger pulley. I think I remember that the cast pulley was in fact used later as an idea that didn't pan out. I could be wrong on that but they were NOT an early item.

Robert, Alan & John

As said, this is a typical crank pulley used on Canadian cars from c1920. Started about the same time the Generator / starter system came out.

The last of the 1927s used the USA pressed steel type as seen in Australian cars. I presume this was a Canadian change.

The "A" in a circle appeared on a lot of the Canadian castings in late 1925, possibly for the 26 models.

I often wondered if the "A" in circle, designated "Australia" as were the first 26-27 USA bodies were code named "Australian".

Budd built prototypes of these bodies as early as June-July 1925 for at least Roadster, Touring & Sedan. Maybe they were hand built as a tender to Ford but the photos do exist. They had USA steel body frames so obviously were not for Ford Australian, that used timber body frames.

Maybe Budd made the sheet metal for the die manufactures for the huge press at Ford

Here are some of the pics.
