Re: 1912 -1913 engine

I would say 12 also from the high hump where the fan bolts on and the serial number is above the water neck instead of side of block.

Re: Later flywheel fit in narrow pan?

Depends on how early you are talking, the early square door hogshead and one piece pan will not except it but a 10 pan is 3/4 in wider like all the later ones have and those will take a starter hoghead.

Re: Coil ring sealant

I use to rebuild my own, then had Wally do them for me, Now since Wally Retired I have Bill Lucius of New Riegel Ohio do them for me, he supplies the big vendors with them and they are to deep in the engine to mess them up and to have to do them again. 419-595 2310 is his number. Hope this helps!

Re: 4th main

Some of the ball bearing fourth mains are loctited to the shaft, when the trans heats up it has to expand and if it can not go out the rear it will go forward and push on the thrust of the rear main or get into the magnets and field coil?
