Re: Touring model year ??

If it were '20 or later wouldn't the fenders be crowned Mike? That verticle rear top panel sort of reminds me of my former '15.

The modern Neoprene seals are the way to go. Make sure the "lip" inside the tube is nice and clean..I use...

Re: Greasing rear wheels

One thing I failed to mention...if you're not aware of it you will need a special rear wheel hub puller in order to get the rear wheels off. You may have a model T friend nearby with one or I would advise just buying one from any vendor, as you will need it more than you think!

Re: Greasing rear wheels

You will find a grease cup at the ends of the rear axle near each wheel for greasing those bearings. It may take quite a bit..who knows! I prefer to put on a grease zerc and pump grease in with a modern grease gun, also jack each wheel up and spin them while greasing, for better grease distribution....

Or...is this an "optical illusion" given the angle, and it appears to be totally closed? I keep looking. That said, would oil still
eventually accumulate and still leak out? Basically it's a good idea...don't get me wrong!! Just being inquisitive is all!
