Re: cowl hood hinges
I have a 70 tribute car with a cowl hood and induction system. All works but the hinges wont allow the hood to close down on the back side. What is the best hinges to purchase and right spring setup?
It may be binding. Spray all hinges with WD-40. If it is binding a little, this will allow the back end to go down. Be warned though, WD-40 makes the hinges slick, so, if your springs are not up to the task, the hood many not stay up in the various positions.
