as John Noonan said for us big foot's, I heard there is a way to rework--bend --redo, the brake lever so as to allow ones big foot and leg to move around this very important device without tearing up his pant leg and causing the back of the knee to bleed.seems the model t was built for the smaller double jointed folks,so we six foot three hundred pounder's with size 14 feet have to make adjustments at times.[id rather do the adjusting to myself but adjusting the FORD is much less costly.

Enter and exit thru the passengers side...

Greg, are you talking about the brake lever or the pedal? I'm easily confused. :-)
Zee-ing the parking brake lever to get it out of the way is pretty easy to do.

Yes, you can bend the brake lever towards the driver's side to give some extra room (I did mine cold with a big honkin' Crescent wrench).

Don't go too far, or the end of the lever will dig into the side trim when the lever is fully forward. :-)

What model do you have is it a touring or a enclosed model, I have a 26 touring made in Canada with four doors but the drivers side door is a tight fit even for Santa's elves, I enter from the passenger side, the wide pedals were used on later model Ts, the early model pedals were all narrow like the reverse pedal with out the vertical blade which I think was designed to help your foot stay on the pedal but can also catch a pants leg.

There are aftermarket pedal extensions for the clutch and brake pedal that bolt on.
