Sorting through a heap of T stuff I acquired. Found this and my brain stopped working...( it's none too good at the best of times).. Says APCO Providence RI(?) Patented June 6 1925 and July 7 1925 what is it ?

It is a replacement bolt on pan arm. If the model T engine pan stressed a pan hanger arm somehow and broke it, this bolts on in place of the missing arm onto the two side bolts for the hogshead and supports from the frame like the original arm did. They were made and sold by many different companies, in both pressed steel (like yours) or cast iron (I think I have a cast iron pair, but have not seen them in many years). I even used a pair of pressed steel ones on one of my low-buck restorations many years ago. It worked great!
Being Apco is a plus. They made so many accessories for model T Fords that they are somewhat a collectible on their own.

Thanks Wayne...I knew there would be a good explanation.. I have found a couple of somewhat more ornate ones that are cast.. pardon my ignorance of US geography .Providenece rings a bell as a town or city... what is RI?

RI is the state of Rhode Island.

I posted some photos in What did you do in October. I show a pan that had the ears cut off and flanges bent in order to use these ears. I'm putting the correct flanges back on the pan.

I don't think I'd trust one that's been broken.

RI is a little place just south of Messachusetts!
A guy by the name of Roger Williams moved there when he was kicked out of the Bay Colony many years ago.

It is known for red roosters and red chowda

Tom / Fred.. thanks for the heads up on RI .. not sure about the chowda but am familiar with the Roosters.

Sorting through this stuff I got has revealed a few items I have never seen before.. found a couple of Kingston Elevated Timers and another set up that had a distributor drive from a gear at the back of the generator... interesting
