7016 hood hinge bolts and springs.

Recommended Posts

Removed the hood to take out the engine on my 7016, and don't remember how it goes back together :I. I thought the springs went between the frame and the ears coming off the hood, but it seems too tight for them to go that way. Do the springs go on the insides/inboard side of the ears?? Thanks in advance.

This parts dwg indicates the spring goes between the frame and mounting ear:


But I seem to remember the spring was on the inside of the mounting ears on the 7018 I parted out.

The spring goes inside the mounting ears. No room for the spring to be between the mounting ear and the frame. There is a need for some clearance so that the hood can move, but the spring is used so that everything sits tightly to prevent a rattle.
