From years of studying 12’s I believe the T 202 dB markings where towards the inside of the axle near the hump where the perch goes through. I probably can yet you a picture if you email me at meyre14t@yahoo.com. This may not be the only location.

Michael-
I believe the DB axles used during 1913-1914. Maybe late 1912?
My late 1911 has the Transue-Williams mark that is larger than the later years.

The DB markings were located in various place during 1912 and 1913. Many times they are on both sides, sometimes they are upside down. I've even seen them in four places on the same axle.

Last question,
Would late 11 early 12 be the same as late 12 to early 13.

My late October 11 built car has T202 on all four corners. All also have db in a circle. The db on the left rear side of the axle is upside down. Art
