1933 pickup hood struts

Recommended Posts

33 pickup, does the hood struts go between the radiator shell and radiator or do they go underneath the radiator tab.  They have a countersink in them like they would go between.

I have heard people say one way or another and I tried both but to put the struts underneath made things fit better so I went with that way.

If it is anything like the 1930 Dodge 8 DC, they go in the little upstand attached to the top of the radiator, to help hold the radiator in place. The struts are threaded, from memory.

Not sure if this is of any help, but have one pic showing where they are. Don't have the truck any longer or would get you some better shots.
