I have been watching and learning on this forum for a few months now trying to absorb all the info I can. I have a 25 t pickup that I have been working on when I can, going though the rear end now and waiting on parts, anyway I just wanted to say hello and thank you.
Welcome! Can you post a few pictures of your pickup?
If you've been following the forum, then you know that there is a file size limit of 250K (better to stay under 245K for margin) per pic. You can use the program "Paint" to resize your pictures if their file size is too big.
I will share a pic or two if I figure it out, not very computer savvy.
Roger judging from your profile picture you have a fantastic start on having a fun time. Welcome.
PS there is another T in your future, trust me.ha
John, Why is it that some people can fall into a big hole and float out and smell like a big batch of ROSES?
Roger and enjoy the ride.
A few pics.
Bill ain't it the truth, only thing that could be worse is that the pickup bed tailgate doesn't have Ford stamped on it.
I think it is a early 25, but the tailgate dose say ford. you cant have it all. The engine # is 11041398.
Roger, you've been with us awhile but I'll post this in case you haven't seen it. http://dauntlessgeezer.com/DG80.html
You might also pick up some useful Model T info in Hutch next weekend: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/593684.html?1449928114.
Wow, your '25 makes my Barney look like a junkyard dog! Very nice!!
Thanks everyone, I am new to the T's so I may have a few dumb questions. First question i've only seen a few T's with front finder braces, was that an option or something someone just made??
The Flatland T's Chapter of the MTFCA is in your area. We have members from McPherson and other points in central Kansas. Shortly, we will be having a "work day" on T transmissions and then a Field Day in May with some fun and games for all. Our Chapter likes to help each other out with our projects and we have quite a few younger members thanks to the nearby McPherson College!

Front fender braces were not factory options. Several different styles can be found. Some are more popular than others. If you go to www.books.google.com and look around in old automotive periodicals from the late teen's and 20'S you might find the ones you have. In the mean time, you'll probably have fun looking at all of the other various accessories available for a T.
Those fender braces weren't a Ford product. I assume they were available commercially, but most of the ones I've seen looked home made.
Verne thanks, I work in McPherson and my oldest Daughter is going to McPherson Collage, but sadly she is not in the restoration program. ha ha
Some of you may recall Jay's post:
that's the one! thanks Richard.
Welcome to the affliction!
Drive carefully, and do enjoy!
The late 26 and 27 have a brace between the fenders. The older models had a problem with sagging especially when people sat on the fenders or heavy loads were tied on. Sometimes on pickups people would strap boards between the front and rear fender to deliver to a work site, so the braces would help hold things together. Like the others before me have posted, they were either home made or aftermarket.
Roger, your engine number says Tuesday, January 13, 1925.
Thanks Steve, the title matches the block but who knows a lot can happen in 91 years. at least it wasn't a Monday or a Friday. but I don't think Henry let anyone slack in those days so it probably didn't matter.
Nice pickup Roger!
It has some nice coils in it Mike.
