Usual embossed type used 1918-27. The version to the right with embossings at the gasket surface was made out of thinner steel and may have been used 1918-21(?):

You failed to show the 1912, early '13 Ford script cover with Made in USA on it.

Well, do you have a photo to add, Larry? :-)
(There are several versions of the early square and rectangular plates missing too, but I couldn't find photos of them at the forum.)

Roger

Well done

Here are the remainders:

First door, flat steel , for the 2-pedal T's, with bolt that turned lever underneath the door to lock it in place. Dimples in corner align the cover.



The later door, alum, with 4 bold ridges in the cover as you pictured.

The 'Made in USA' taper cover, used mid 1912 to early 1913.

On the two side by side photo That Roger shows the embossed one on the right is the same type as on Derrick Pang's '21 Runabout. My Late '26 has the one on the left.

I don't think they ever changed in Kansas. We don't have evolution.
