HOOD AND HINGE MOUNTINGS
Tilt type hoods (Figs. 3 & 4) used with S-Series cabs
are one-piece molded fiberglass units. While they may vary
slightly in size, appearance and hinge mounting, they are
similar in servicing as follows:
Hood Opening (Tilting)
The hood assembly is hinged near bumper and can
be tilted by releasing hood latches on
cowl panels. Place foot on bumper step, grasp handle recess
and pull complete hood, fenders and grille assembly to front.
There are two hood stop cables to prevent over-travel of hood.
To lower hood, push the hood towards cab and at the
same time hold back at handle recess to ease the hood into
travelling position. Secure both hood latches at cowl panels.
Do not allow hood to drop into place or damage can result.
