Choke hole location in Model T radiators

In December of 1910 Ford Model Ts used a priming rods routed between the fins of the radiator.  In January of 1911, Ford drilled a choke rod hole in the lower part of the front trim.  The Brassworks does not drill this hole as not every customer is certain of the production month and year.  The location of the hole is noted below for reference.
