Hood removal 1938 1608

Post by Bluedevil » Sun Jan 06, 2019 1:18 pm

I am trying to remove the hood from my '38 1608. I have removed the 2 x 7/16" bolts over the radiator in the front and that is loose. What else needs to be disconnected at the firewall end?

Thanks

Bill

If it is similar to my 1201 there should be 2-3 nuts/bolts at the cowl end of the hood, in the center section. I accessed them from under the dash. I hope my memory is correct and this helps.

Thanks for the info. I saw some bolts under the dash, not easy to get to. I will work on them.
