What type pedals should be on a 1925? The ones on my truck are the wide ones and the clutch pedal hits the hand brake and the brake pedal; sticks up on the trans,housing .Is there a T owner in the Knox or Lincoln county Maine area who can help me with problems and other questions I have about the T .
This is my first T.so I can use some help !
Thanks

The 1926 model year began in the autumn of 1925. That's when the wise pedals first appeared. If the car is truly a 1925 model then it should have three identically shaped pedals. Perhaps someone installed a 1926 engine / transmission which is also very common.

I guess I need to change the wide pedals for the spoon shaped ones?

Depends. Is your car really a '25, or is it a '26?

You don't need to do anything, we don't have any points deducted for using various year T parts on your car. That part is your decision.

If yours is one of the last 25's made in july 1925 it may have been equipped with wide pedals from start - here's a thread about a '25 Fordor that was built july 25 1925 (engine # 12,210,xxx): http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/285201.html?1337287016
It has the wide pedals, but not the rest of the improved '26 engine features. From engine #12,218,729 made july 27 all engine production was of the improved type (and the '25 body types weren't produced any more)
