COMMENTS

Possible upper bounds of twin primes pairs ending in 1: For a 30k+r "wheel", k > 0, r = 1, 13, 19 are the only possible values that can form an upper bound of a twin prime pair. The 30k+r wheel gives the sequence 1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 49, 53, 59 .. which is frequently used in prime number sieves to skip multiples of 2, 3, 5. The fact that subtracting 2 from 30k+7, 11, 17, 23 will give us a multiple of 3 or 5 precludes these numbers from being an upper bound of a twin prime pair. This leaves us with r = 1, 13, 19 for k>0 as the only possible cases to form an upper bound of a twin prime pair. 1, 13, 19 concludes the 6 numbers of the 8 number wheel that can form part of a twin prime pair.
