Got a new hood and am attempting to install. it sits way too high for the latches to connect. Looking at everything I see where the hood shelves (all wood) extend under the radiator mounting bracket making the radiator sit about 3/4" higher, about the same distance as what I'm lacking to get the latches to work. I suspect this is not correct?
This is on the 13 pie wagon?
I think you're correct... and it isn't.
Rod, with the pre 26 model T's the radiator does not sit on the hood shelves. On your 13 the radiator should sit directly on the frame with a leather pad between them.
Thanks for the replies, I guess that explains the hood fit problem. The previous hood was some home made concoction that didn't fit well either.
