Does the end of the pull part of the latch look correct, or has it been damaged? Tom
Looks fine to me. The latch on my 71 doesn't have such an extreme dip in the middle like yours, but the end looks the same. I can't compare it to my 73Z since she's in the shop getting her 500 mile checkup.
Should look like this..
when you open your hood does it release all the way past the safety latch or does it catch ?
It will catch on the safety latch hook by design. You have to hold the handle until you lift the hood clear of the safety catch.
so it should catch at original release , it goes right by on initial release but does catch if push down on hood by hand
so alignment is correct
is it correct to have the hood sitting on side posts for alignment of the fenders and the spring post adjusted to just pop up to open hood
