bling on the hood

Postby ReTractor » Tue Feb 02, 2010 7:35 pm

my lo-boy has the international cub emblems on both sides of the hood. i'd like to re-paint the hood (and fenders) in the springtime and will need to remove the emblems to do that. I started checking them out one day and i see that each one has 5 posts or studs that hold it to the hood. these things are in good shape and i'd like to be able to take them off-paint-reinstall without messing them all up. so all this is leading to the million dollar question. what is the best way to get them off without destroying them? they are expensive and i don't want to replace if i don't have to. I did take a couple of screw drivers and put a little pressure where the stud is but that didn't look all that promising. i guess this applies to the IH hood ornament too. thanks.

On mine I took a small hammer and lightly tapped on the pin part from the inside. You might want to spray some wd40 or such on it first. Just be gentle with it. Bob

I don't recall ever seeing this addressed. All the emblems can be easily removed by this method... tap the studs from the inside with a very small hammer , tapping each just a little, taking turns. :D

Congratulations on wisely abandoning the screwdriver method... a sure way to destroy the emblems.

You can take a pair of plier & turn the barrel inserts so they will break to get the emblems off the hood. NAPA sells replacements. If you can take one with you to compair. They will be rusty so replacing them is a plus.

Hello George and thanks for the reply. I'm glad I was able to pose something original for you to jump in on...not the regular dumb questions that I might normally ask. The screwdriver thought was my first probe of the problem. Once i saw more resistance then i had expected i backed right off of that plan. Along with all the others I hope to see more of your posts in the future as you are feeling up to it. Thanks again.
