I thought for sure that the answer to number 4 was "eccentric crank." Or possibly just "crank".

1. Something by Disney; I think Julie Andrews was in it.
2. The truck, motorcycle (Daimler's), Ford's horseless carriage (LOEG notwithstanding).
3. RNAS R34.
4. Eccentric valve gear; in some cases the expansion valve (is that a "fat" joke?).
5. Santos-Dumont.
6. 11 if memory serves.
7. oysters
8. danged if I know.
9. The Horror of the Heights (there's more to    the title, something about a manuscript). Written sometime between 1908 and 1913 - I think.
10. Mary...Seacoal? Segal?

Aw, geez, why'd you do that?

Looks like I misread #4
