B10 Hood Bolts

Recommended Posts

Thumb screws from McMaster-Carr 5/16-18 x 1 [url]http://www.mcmaster.com/#thumb-screw-fasteners/=fgp0y7[/url] With black nylon washer [url]http://www.mcmaster.com/#thumb-screw-fasteners/=fgp0y7[/url] Pretty much what the factory used on the flat hood tractors. John U

The standard hardware will work OK at the rear attaching points but are a poor substitute in the front as the hood support is slotted and they won't hold as well as the spring loaded originals. I've seen washers welded to the top of the hood support so you can run a bolt through with a nut on the backside.

Check out the hood bolts in the last few pics in the thread below. (sorry its so long, just jump to the end pics) The're also from McMasters but I searched a bit longer till I found these. They are the most like the OEM bolts in style, just plastic coated...which I liked better. and only a few bucks...sm01 http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=118636

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
