Hole locations on a 67 cub hood

Sun Jan 13, 2013 11:22 pm

Well here it is in a nut shell p.o. Replaced what I assume were rotten dog legs with flat steel which he welder to the inside of the hood, I am do my best to restore her toots former gleam .... But he welder over all the bolt hole and filled them with bondo!! Now. I do have a set of decent dog legs but without the location of the mounting hole and light mount holes too I m at my wits end .... Could someone that has their hood off make me a template and mail it to me or something !!! Frustrated by ppl who make bad choices I have to deal with
Thnx a lot fellas

cc104:

I think it will be more cost effective to purchase a used set of dog legs either from our forum sponsors such as JP Tractor Salvage, one of our members - post an ad in the Wanted Cub Items forum. Another option is :eBay: where used ones are available usually on a regular basis anywhere from a $9.99 to $19.99 price range depending on seller and condition.

These ones are new reproductions: For Farmall Cub Hood extensions, RH and LH new

DE Farmall Cubs is also another viable option.

The Dog Legs for a Square nose hood are much higher than the round nose ones

Is it the hole locations on the hood that you need, on the doglegs, or both?

He's looking for the hole locations and sizes for the square nose hood.

The square nose doglegs have a wide tab that fits up behind the hood, and has the holes in it for the light bar and the wiring pass-through.

If you have doglegs like are pictured above, you have the wrong doglegs.

The correct square nose doglegs can be used as a template for drilling all those holes the PO filled in. Just bolt them to the grill surround and bolt the grill surround to the hood.

Boss is right --- :roll: For some reason I missed the '67 part :oops:

All the rest applies except you need the correct dog legs - IH Item # 38 - IH Part # 384 983 R11 RH w/nut and IH Item # 39 - IH Part # 384 982 R11 LH w/nut

New doglegs!! Wow, they are tough to find for a square nose.

I have 2 hoods that can be used for making a template, but I never was good at art. I will try to remember my crayons, and will get it done in the next couple of days. In the meantime the below picture may help.... Also, the stickers are available from a dealer or TM. There are some ugly aftermarket ones around, so be careful. Also he has nice fasteners for the hood if you are going to order from them.

BTW, one hole is only for the headlight wires, so not as critical. There should be a nut welded to the dog leg for the headlight bracket (5/8 NC??). And the there are 1" standoffs on the radiator sides (those actually support the hood). The doglegs really don't add structural strength to the whole thing. Three pieces of sheet metal attach to the front of the hood, dogleg (light stud), radiator standoff and grille frame (also a weldnut). So it could be worthwhile to put it all in place BEFORE you do any drilling to double check the fit and alignment. There are also two holes on top of the hood....also for the grille frame. Oh, and two little holes for the hood ornament too.

Uh oh...standoffs. I guess you learn something new every day. Mine doesn't have them, and never knew it was supposed to have.. (hood was off when I got it)
Thanks for the photo...

I remember something seeming not quite correct, and a little squirrely with the headlights as well. I probably won't bother until I have to take the hood off again. (and look in the tray of extra hardware that came with her) I will have a look-see, for your post, Boss! Thanks,
