Shown above is an interesting water inlet fitting design on the Model B engine. It appears to be a rather long casting with the drain valve mounted directly to the casting.

The casting is connected to the radiator by a single long hose and no lower pipe, whereas the US Model 46 four cylinder cars used a long steel radiator outlet pipe with a hose connection on each end.

The pic above shows the Model A style tail lamp in use. It is mounted on a very tall straight vertical lamp bracket to accommodate the large square-ish German rear license plate.

Also shown is the adjustable bent spoke wheels in the actual car photo. The other tire-changing illustrations are the same as the US and show the typical welded spoke wheels.
