Does the smooth side of the gear face the inside of the wheel or is the letter side facing the inside of the wheel ?

Letter side out for people to see. (smooth side face wheel)

Again, you didn't provide the year of your car, nor the number on you gear. The answer is the lettered part faces the engine. Please provide more information in the future!

According to Russ Furstnows book depending when in 1913 your car was built, it could have a Stewart 22, or perhaps a Stewart 1322. I have both on my '13s.

Further to Larry's post, the 1913 gear has 4 mounting holes. This was reduced to 3 in 1914 and onwards, again according to Russ Furstnow's book.

Both the 22 and the 1322 have four mounting holes. Stewart is in block letters on both.

Not so Larry, according to fossil evidence. This is one of two gears I bought at a sale yesterday, 4 mounting holes for 1913 according to Russ, and the Stewart in script.



Damn these Ts. One can never be sure about anything.

I've got a 1322 gear and I'm pretty sure the Stewart is in block letters so maybe they switched to script later or they made them both ways. I've got a later 11077 gear that is script. I just got the 1322 gear and remember noticing the block letters.

I'm sure Russ would back me up on this one. I don't believe the one Allan posted is for a '13, but would definitely be for a '14. Did some so&so countershink one of the holes?

No countersink Larry, it's new old stock. Russ's book states the change to script occurred later in 1913. He lists 3 hole gears for 1914-25 at photo 4-48.

And then there's this one. Factory cast for 1913 four screw mounting, with script, but drilled for just 3 screws.

I have one like Allan last posted above with the script Stewart logo on a July 1913 car but the block letter style was used earlier that year.

This is the earlier 1913 road gear that would be painted black. The extra holes are in the casting for "3 hole" and a slightly smaller radius "4 hole" mount. Stewart began supplying these to Ford in mid-1911 but they were brass plated.




Black and brass began in the 1912 model year so these would probably show up on later '12 cars painted black.
