Hood Spring assembly


Wally

Recommended Posts

OK not sure what the black spring thing is really called. Anyway, can someone help me understand where it bolts up exactly and how. If anyone has an image that would be appreciated.

 

I took lots of photos when i disassembled but i must have missed a couple like this one.

thanks

That is called a hinge. I can take some photos later today.

Thanks! If in your photos you happen to show where the front bumper brackets go on the body or where the grill mounts up to the body i would not be upset at all.  LOL

thanks steve

Your mount tabs are bent straight out. They need to be at a 90 degree to line up with the hole in the grill. Should be easy enough, but the paint might chip. 

Here are some pic's from an older post (not mine)

Well that's interesting. It appears as though the 73 (my car) has a slightly different grille as the mounting tabs on my car clearly bend up.  And...the parts catalog bears that out: 62300-E4601 is for the 70-72 and 62300-N3301 is for the 73. The different grille accommodated the 73's bumper mounts.

It looks like his tabs are on upside down. When he bends them up the nuts will be on the front facing side of the tab. Not on the rear side like the examples

I think Wally's car is a 1971 so he will be bending the tabs down and the nut will be correct. @Wallycan you confirm that.

yes 1971. I did bend upward.  I did have to make some "Adjustments" to get them to fit snugly but its all on tight now. The hole was too high so i made a new hole lower.

I've gone a week with no alcohol, beer for me. I quit vodka about 9am New Year's morning 2006. Girls and drugs all over the place and I wanted to go to sleep, alone. LOL

Anyhow this past week I've gotten so much stuff done I may try this a little longer. It is football season and I'm an Alabama guy so maybe Saturday's only?

Thank you both for ringing my bell.

Good for you Cliff, a week is a long time if it's your daily routine. I did the numbers, I was spending $6,500.00 per year to support my liquid recreation, now I just buy more car parts.
