Hood support question

Postby rexxon » Mon Mar 07, 2016 7:27 pm

Working on this 49 and the front hood supports are broken off where they were spot welded to hood, has anyone ever tried using the hood spacers from a square hood and drill a hole in hood to use that to hold round hoods????

I've used those several times and they came out great. This is how I managed it with the help of a friend:
Make any repairs to the hood, if damaged.
Secure the new brackets to the radiator supports
Bolt the hood in place at the rear and the doglegs
Have one person support the front of the hood so the doglegs are straight and tight, not bowed out.
Have the second person reach under the hood and, using a Sharpie marker, trace around the tank brackets
Remove tank, and spot weld the brackets in place on the tank

Good luck!

When you get the hood lined up, there won't be any hood where you would need to drill the hole.

I've bolted the hood supports to the radiator support, then tack welded, through the hole in the hood, where the old support weld, tore out. Then remove the hood, and weld more, on the underside, and repair the damage, on the hood.
