Does anyone have the dimensions/drawing of these blocks? Looks like I could make some fairly easy. For a 17-22 low radiator model.
Don't have sketches.
But this photo is set of originals on a '23 low hood shelf.
By the way, the holes drilled for the hood clamp holddowns are slightly angled, so the shaft of the hold down is at a slight angle for the ear of the hold down to grasp onto the hood. And to allow the hold down to be angled away so as to not interfere too much with you lift the hood.
The hood shelf is assembled first, with hold downs, washer, spring and cotter. That allows the assembly to be easily positioned on the fender/frame.
Here is another from earlier post with fabricated blocks.
OK Thanks. I'll try to make some. Hate to be so cheap but I've got plenty scrap wood.
I have yet to see a repro that is made correctly! The thickness has to be exactly the same as the lip on the hood shelf. The angles on the repro blocks is most always off. I've had good luck finding originals, usually NOS.
