Hood release

Postby HD54KH » Tue Jul 23, 2013 11:50 am

Can someone send me some pics of the hood release system? It is a lever inside the cab, cable route and attachment points to the hood and release bellcrank.

Right now I have a wire clothes hanger poking out of the space between the hood and rad support to pull for releasing it.

Thanks in advance

The cable runs straight up to the mechanism in the center of the hood. From there a cable runs out to each side to pull in the latch pin. Mine were all missing, including the latch pins. If you've got a coat hangar out of the front, it sounds like your latch pins and their cables are intact. Send me a PM and I'll email you a pic, in case I can't post one here without a lot of trouble.
