Old Branham's Automotive books generally have serial numbers by year. They also have pictures of the serial number location on the truck. You can find these on the internet if you look around. I would guess the truck your friend has was built in the late teens. If by chance it had a Buda engine, it would be pre-1919. Internal gear rear axles were used into the twenties. Keep us posted.

I haven't had much luck with online Branhams; therte's several in Googlebooks but only one or two are full view...
If none turn up that're helpful try the annual specs in The Motor Truck, Comm'l Car Journal and the Comm'l vehicle; believe all full view on hathitrust..don't think they list serial #s but do show WB etc...
Tad's truck spotters guide does indicate your fenders18-20, and the Buda's show 1916-21 in my old catalogs...HU, QU,T, TU and YTU are shown...
