Looking for any help to get my f-100 hood to shut properly. I have been on the ford truck enthusiasts site and I am just not satisfied with everybody's answers. The hood will not go down on it's own in the back. The hinges look like new aftermarket and have zero rust. New springs. Hood stays up nicely but will not close in the back, you have to push it down by hand. Everyone says they were like this when new, no way do I agree to that at all. Some say it is one specific pivot that is too tight. Anybody have any real hands on experience? No I am not putting a tilt hood on it. There has to be a way to get these to close correctly.
