Are the hood straps (for an AC-716H style tractor) available from Simplicity dealers? I guess I can make some out of rubber but thought I'd ask... thanks.

I have been making mine from the heavy rubber bunji cords like they use on semi-trailers. These are sold locally and much cheaper than the factory ones. I just remove the "S" hooks from the end, cut to length and drill two holes in it. The heavy ends where the hook attaches replace the ball on the originals. They work fine. I can get pictures tomorrow.

Ordered a pair from Jack's, plus a new gas cap/gauge. I was looking over their parts reference, wow it's pretty detailed and they sure seem to have a lot of parts available!
