Here are a couple of pics of the Hood a couple of guys might be interested in. It measures approx. 21 5/8" long and approx. 21" wide.

Well the stack holes look right. I just went out and measured mine and your quoted length looks to be very close but the width on mine is 17&3/4" wide front and back. My hood/grill housing that the hood front would rest on is also about 17&3/4s" across.

Are you taking into account overlap? Either way if no one needs it here I'm going to Ebay it.

On mine there are 2-brackets with holes in them on each side for I imagine the hood to bolt to. Front brackets are attached to the radiator and the rear brackets are attached to the firewall panel between engine & gas-tank. From side to side the width is 17&3/4 inches. I dont know but maybe the bottom sides of the hood panel gets pulled in that extra inch & a`half when fastening.

I have a friend a few miles down the road with a baler sitting out in his back forty with a power-unit like mine so if his still has the hood I can get a hands on look at how his fits. I haven`t seen it for a couple years and I dont remember if it had a hood but carb & other parts were missing.

I didn't measure it, but that would be approximately the size of the one missing from the Continental power unit I looked at.

The sides are flared out quite a bit when I measured it. I'll check and see but I'm a thinkin they would be closer to 18" if they were pushed in straight.

Who moved this? I haven't said a thing about anything for sale yet. If this item was for sale thats were I would have put it. We are just trying to determine what this goes on for now. :?
