1956 Ford hood latch

3 posts in this topic

I am having trouble with my hood latch not holding all the time.  Of course the safety hook works preventing the hood from flying open .  Is there any adjustment for this latch or do I need to find another one?

Thanks in advance...........Coalter Paxton

Try flushing out the old grease with WD40 and then apply a light coating of white lithium grease to operating part that locks the hood..

It sounds like it may need cleaning. The other thing is the spring on the hood pin may have too much tension. Did you make any adjustments to it?
