Dog leg Brackets

Postby Pap » Fri Jul 02, 2021 3:29 pm

I having problems getting those broken dog leg bolts out. I saw that somebody made some brackets that uses the side radiator bolts. I just like to know if that works ok. Anyone that has done that please let me know.

Rick Prentice came up with that idea. Rick is well known on the forum for his quality work. If he came up with the idea I would not hesitate to use them.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Thanks Barnyard. That is the ones that I saw. Looks like that might be easier to do than all the drilling. I was thinking about trying to change it a little bit to use both of the side bolts. That may not work.

That looks to be made to use both bolts.

I am talking about both radiator bolts. I would have to make it a little wider.

Just looks to me that it would be stronger and better. Maybe not. That is why I am asking for info on it.

If the front of the hood has the bracket on either side that attaches it to the radiator support, the doglegs are only cosmetic.
