Hood Side Panel MTG Holes

Postby goxu1 » Sun Feb 11, 2024 5:30 pm

The mounting holes for the side panels on my hood have been enlarged to suit 1/4"
Is there any easy fix to get back to the original size ?
I found some 10-24 nutserts that would do the job , but not sure what space is available on the backside of the hood as the nutserts are about 1/2" long

Are the captive nuts still welded to the hood?

I think so. From memory I think they were just drilled and tapped to 1/4"
I'll check when I get home..

I have used these style inserts on other applications - not on the cub, and they work well. The main difference between these and the welded nut is the insert has a flange and it raises the mounting surface a bit. It may change the lines of the sheet metal a little.

I would put a few washers under the dog leg and use the current setup and see if you are ok with the look before you drill and use the insets.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Several years ago, I painted a Cub that had been enlarged to 1/4”, I just said “good enough” and sent it home that way. Keep in mind, when nutserts are set, they do shorten a little. Nutserts were a wonderful invention!

This is what my hood looks like. It is a 48 Cub. The nuts on the inside simply provide female threads for attachment to the doglegs. I measured the distance from the hood to the fan cowl and it is 15/16". This distance was the same on both sides.

I agree with Gary. Use what fits. Visually, everyone but you will not see the difference.

May be hard to see in the pic, but yes, it is just a nut tack welded in place.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
