That oil well project of yours sounds like fun, if you still have it it would be neat to see pic's of it, American pride and remembrance of the twin towers.
I have a basket case 1918 T Touring i have been wanting to re-assemble for my grandmother someday who use to restore them with her (my great grandfather) father in the late 40's and 50's, her first car to drive to school was a 1916 T Roadster with the brass rad.
How is your DB going so far, have you tried out the clutch yet ?

You can go up to 14 balls with no troubles, my uncle has done it before, i would not but just get that out there it can and has been done, as for the NOS 12 balls i would assume the 12th is extra in case one is lost, i also heard that the Suburbans took 12 balls but can not confirm that, Lauber1 is the DB Suburban expert and hopefully will correct me regarding that statment.
As for the 4 balls, more than likely the rest was lost or egg-shaped and gave a lot of trouble and promply removed, as the years go by the clutch needs to be adjusted in to keep from slipping and the thrust-washer wears down resulting in the 4 balls. The same could of happened with your friend's clutch with the 10 balls, time changes things, the balls can still be ordered new from Sears to this day or from any other Co. that makes ball-bearings as long as you can give them the size.
Rambling it not a problem here Dave, as you see i type up some long winded posts, if it's something you love and enjoy, then please, type it out.
I hope this helps and again, Dave, Welcome to GT Talk.
