Hood Hardware

Postby Gary Puckett » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:07 pm

I took the hood off my 59 cub for the first time. It was much easier than a John Deer A if you have not done that. I noticed after the hood was off, there is a place for a fastener to screw in the radiator support at the top on each side, but, there was no bolt or fastener in them and I do not see a place on the hood for a bolt to attach. I did nee a YouTube video where someone appeared to be removing bolts at that location. I did not see any bolts in the parts manual in the exploded view either. I know someone can clarify. Thanks

Gary, your hood should have two brackets like the ones on the left and they are held in by a short 5/16" bolt, one on each side. Yours could be possibly broken off and gone. The radiator support has a nut welded in it to receive the bolt. It could be gone to, never know what a previous owner may have done. The support only has one nut but 2 holes, if someone has replaced the radiator they could have switched sides making the nut in the wrong position. And yes the hood on a styled J.D 2 cylinder is a pain, steering shaft, gas tank, etc. Whew.

If your brackets are missing, replacements are available here...

check your instrument panel also, when those are missing it tends to make the bottom of panel crack as the hood is moving around with those bolts missing

Shane and others,
Thanks for solving the mystery for me. I cannot imagine how those brackets came off. I take it they were spot welded. I really did not want to weld on the hood and do a paint job now. The nuts are still in the radiator supports, but I do not know if they are on the wrong side or not.

JB Weld may do the trick for those brackets. Not that much pressure on them .

Hi,
The nuts in the radiator side supports should be in the front holes. :)

Are the two holes so they could manufacture one part and then weld a nut on either hole depending on the side?

With me being a manufacturing/industrial in my other life, that is what we would have done. The channel brackets are manufactured under the same part number. Then when the nut is welded to the channel you create a right or left assembly depending upon the location of the nut. The part number then changes to identify a LH or RH assembly.

Hi,
The 2 bolts for the hood brackets are 1/2" long, the Cub parts manual says. They use lock washers also. They are shown in the Cub parts manual with the hood, number 3 in the pic.
The upper pic of the hood is like the 1959 Cub would have had.
The description is on the 2nd page below.
They have to be short so they don't hit the radiator. :)
